Eutrombicula alfreddugesi is motile with some life stages being more active than others. We searched for ectoparasites in the skin folds and on the body of each lizard.

This tube is called a stylostome. Phylogenetic analysis an taxonomy of the Tropidurus group of lizards Iguania: To cite this page: Another possibility is that incoming mites may only fix themselves in sites not yet overcrowded.

Revision of Eutrombicula Ewing Acarina: Each analysis was done with all specimens of each species and repeated separately by sex. Contrary to popular belief, these parasitic larvae do not feed on blood. This hypothesis, however, has not yet been sufficiently tested. The results of the Mann-Whitney test for differences in intensity of parasitism between body sides indicated that the intensity of parasitism of the inguinal region of T.

The distribution of larval Eutrombicula alfreddugesi infesting Anolis lizards from different habitats in Hispanola. The protonymph and tritonymph, however, are both inactive as these are pharate life stages.

Parasite of the Day: May 28 – Eutrombicula alfreddugesi

Tropidurus oreadicus has only two deep and oblique pockets in the neck region, and had the second highest intensity of infestation. Ewing, ; Loomis, Larval activity dropped to low levels and remained so until sunrise; this period of reduced activity occurred between and hours.

We observed rutrombicula tendency of an inverse correlation between principal component values representing the number of mites in the neck and inguinal region, when these were contrasted with those for the axillary region.

Williams, ; de Carvalho, et al.

Caribbean Journal of ScienceMayaguez, 32 1: Males have been observed depositing spermatophores onto the substrate eutrombciula the presence of females. This includes Greenland, the Canadian Arctic islands, and all of the North American as far south as the highlands of central Mexico.


Adult females, upon encountering these spermatophores, insert them into their genital pore. In such folds, the larvae are protected from predators.

Therefore, sexual reproduction in E.

The Z-test showed that only T. Following the deutonymph is the tritonymph, which is another inactive stage.

Upon sensing a host, the larvae move up the substrate and attach on to them. Even when data from the same species from different areas are compared, as in the case of T.

Trombiculidae and infestations on fence lizards, Sceloporus undulatus. Ewing, ; Goff, et al. Trombiculidae in a forest edge ecosystem. Evidence suggests that E. Journal of ParasitologyLawrence, 60 4: However, the linear regression test did not confirm the significance of this tendency.

Tropidurus itambere Rodrigues, was the most heavily parasitized species mean intensity of infestation: The hypothesis of differences between species, populations and between sexes were tested with a discriminant analysis.
