  • Gaudalges averianovi sp. nov. (Acariformes: Psoroptidae)—a new parasite of Malagasy lemurs
    Systematic and Applied Acarology, 2018
    Co-Authors: Andre V Bochkov
    Abstract:

    A new species Gaudalges averianovi sp. nov . (Acariformes: Psoroptidae: Makialginae) is described from Lepidolemur ruficaudatus Grandidier (Primates: Lepilemuridae) from Madagascar. A key to all known species of the genus Gaudalges Fain, 1963 is given. This is the first finding of mites of the genus Gaudalges on lemurs of the family Lepilemuridae.

  • External morphology of postembrionic stages of Lutrilichus javanicus (Acariformes: Chirodiscidae) from Melogale moschata (Carnivora: Mustelidae) from Vietnam
    Acarologia, 2018
    Co-Authors: Andre V Bochkov
    Abstract:

    Mites of the family Chirodiscidae (Acariformes: Sarcoptoidea) are permanent mono- or stenoxenous symbionts of mammals living in the fur of their hosts. Among three genera included in the tribe Schizocarpini (Labidocarpinae), members of the genus Lutrilichus Fain inhabit small carnivores of the families Mustelidae and Viverridae (Carnivora). The external morphology of postembrionic stages of Lutrilichus javanicus Fain, 1970 (Acariformes: Chirodiscidae), collected from Melogale moschata (Gray, 1831) (Mustelidae) in Vietnam, is described. This is the second report of this mite species, previously known from a single female specimen from Melogale orientalis Blanford, 1888 in Java, and the first description of the immature stages in the genus Lutrilichus.

  • a new species of myocoptid mites myocoptes comyocoptes nesokia sp nov Acariformes myocoptidae parasitizing nesokia indica rodentia muridae in pakistan
    Acta Parasitologica, 2017
    Co-Authors: Andre V Bochkov, Barry M Oconnor
    Abstract:

    A new species of parasitic mites, Myocoptes (Comyocoptes) nesokia sp. nov. (Acariformes: Myocoptidae) is described from Nesokia indica (Gray, 1830) (Rodentia: Muridae) from Pakistan. Females of this species differ from the morphologically similar species, Myocoptes (Comyocoptes) striatus Fain, 1970, by the presence of a verrucose pattern in the middle part of the hysteronotum, longer setae cp (120-140 μm vs. 55-60 μm), and by the absence of scales on the opisthosomal cuticle posterior to the level of setal bases ps3.

  • Rafapicobia olszanowskii, a New Species of Syringophilid Mite (Acariformes: Syringophilidae) from Semnornis ramphastinus (Piciformes: Semnornithidae)
    Annales Zoologici, 2020
    Co-Authors: Maciej Skoracki, Mateusz Zmudzinski, Bozena Sikora
    Abstract:

    A new quill mite species Rafapicobia olszanowskiisp. nov., belonging to the subfamily Picobiinae (Acariformes: Syringophilidae), is described from quills of contour feathers of the Toucan Barbet Semnornis ramphastinus (Jardine) (Piciformes: Semnornithidae) from Ecuador. Our finding is the first record of syringophilid mites on birds of the family Semnornithidae.

  • Neoaulonastus sidorchukae, a new species of quill mites (Acariformes: Syringophilidae) associated with the purple-rumped sunbird Leptocoma zeylonica (Linnaeus) (Passeriformes: Nectariniidae) from Sri Lanka.
    Zootaxa, 2019
    Co-Authors: Mateusz Zmudzinski, Maciej Skoracki, Martin Hromada
    Abstract:

    A new quill mite species, Neoaulonastus sidorchukae sp. nov. (Acariformes: Syringophilidae), is described from under-tail covert feathers of Leptocoma zeylonica (Linnaeus) (Passeriformes: Nectariniidae) from Sri Lanka. It is the second record of syringophilid mites of the genus Neoaulonastus parasitizing sunbirds.

  • First Record of Quill Mites (Acariformes: Syringophilidae: Picobiinae) Living in the Quill Walls of Parrots.
    Journal of medical entomology, 2019
    Co-Authors: Maciej Skoracki, Bozena Sikora, Martin Hromada
    Abstract:

    Quill mites (Acariformes: Prostigmata: Syringophilidae) are a family of about 400 ectoparasite species known to infest birds for over 140 yr. All previously identified quill mites occur in the calamus, a cavity of the bird feather, where they spent their entire life except for a short dispersion period. In this study, we report the first record of quill mites dwelling in the quill walls during their entire life cycle. In short, we found all of the different life stages of the species Lawrencipicobia poicephali (Skoracki & Dabert 2002) (Acariformes: Syringophilidae) in the quill wall in 33 host individuals of six different host species from many different locations in Sub-Saharan Africa. Hosts were collected over a time period spanning more than 70 yr. Lastly, we report six new avian hosts for this ectoparasite species.
