The streblid batflies of Panama (Diptera, Calypterae: Streblidae
New records of Streblidae
(Diptera: Hippoboscoidea) for Mexico
Host and host-site specificity of bat flies (Diptera: Streblidae
and Nycteribiidae) on Neotropical bats (Chiroptera).
Among bat ectoparasites, Streblidae
(Diptera) stand out.
Out of that total, 69 bats had been parasitised by nine Streblidae
species; the most frequent species were Trichobius joblingi and Trichobius tiptoni.
They noted that sex ratios of bat flies (Diptera: Streblidae
) are commonly skewed toward males.
Early studies of obligate ectoparasitic Diptera in Colombia and Panama highlighted the presence of the families Streblidae
(16 species) and Nycteriibidae (2 species) (Bequaert, 1940).
Molecular evidence for novel Bartonella species in Trichobius major (Diptera: Streblidae
) and Cimex adjunctus (Hemiptera: Cimicidae) from two southeastern bat caves, U.S.A.
An SEM study of leg features of adults, specifically the form and structure of the tarsal claw and pulvillus, was also conducted and these were compared to the same structures in examples of the true bat fly ectoparasitic families Nycteribiidae and Streblidae
, and to the phoretic Mystacinobiidae.
