Abstract

LARESCHI, Marcela et al. First report of mites (Gamasida: Laelapidae) parasitic on wild rodents in Uruguay, with new host records. Neotrop. Entomol. [online]. 2006, vol.35, n.5, pp. 596-601. ISSN 1519-566X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1519-566X2006000500005.

Information is presented for the first time on laelapid mites associated with wild rodents in Uruguay. Specimens of the following species were identified: Laelapinae: Androlaelaps fahrenholzi (Berlese), Androlaelaps rotundus (Fonseca), Gigantolaelaps wolffsohni (Oudemans), Laelaps paulistanensis (Fonseca), Laelaps manguinhosi (Fonseca) and Mysolaelaps microspinosus Fonseca; Haemogamasinae: Eulaelaps stabularis (Koch). Most of the ectoparasite-host associations are reported for the first time. New host and locality records presented in this study are in accordance with previous findings on the same and/or related host species in nearby South American localities.

Keywords : Acari; ectoparasite; Haemogamasinae.
