Abstract:

Eleven species belonging to four families of cheyletoid mites (Acari: Cheyletoidea) are recorded from several species of passeriform birds from Manitoba, Canada. Descriptions and diagnoses are provided for four new species, and six species are recorded for the first time in Canada: Ornithocheyletia turdi sp.nov. (Cheyletidae) ex Turdus migratorius (Turdidae); Ornithocheyletia prognae sp.nov. ex Progne subis (Hirundinidae); Neocheyletiella microrhyncha (Berlese et Trouessart, 1889) (Cheyletiellidae) ex Hirundo rustica and P. subis (Hirundinidae); Harpyrhynchoides zumpti (Fain, 1972) (Harpirhynchidae) ex Quiscalus quiscula (Icteridae); Syringophilopsis icteri sp.nov. (Syringophilidae) ex Icterus galbula (Icteridae); Syringophilopsis troglodytis (Fritsch, 1958) ex Troglodytes aedon (Troglodytidae); Syringophilopsis dendroicae sp.nov. ex Dendroica coronata (Parulidae); Syringophiloidus minor (Berlese, 1887) (Syringophilidae) ex Passer domesticus (Ploceidae); Syringophiloidus motacillae Bochkov et Mironov, 1998 ex Zonotrichia albicollis (Emberizidae); Syringophiloidus seiuri (Clark, 1964), for which the female is redescribed and the male is described for the first time, ex Seiurus aurocapillus (Parulidae). Syringophilopsis elongatus (Ewing, 1911) (Syringophilidae) is recorded here ex Q. quiscula, and has been previously recorded from the red-winged blackbird, Agelaius phoenicius, in Manitoba.

Onze espèces appartenant à quatre familles d'acariens cheyletoïdes (Acari : Cheyletoidea) ont été trouvées chez plusieurs espèces d'oiseaux passeriformes du Canada. Les descriptions et les diagnoses sont fournis pour quatre nouvelles espèces, et sept espèces sont signalées pour la première fois au Canada : Ornithocheyletia turdi sp.nov. (Cheyletidae) ex Turdus migratorius (Turdidae); Ornithocheyletia prognae sp.nov. ex Progne subis (Hirundinidae); Neocheyletiella microrhyncha (Berlese et Trouessart, 1889) (Cheyletiellidae) ex Hirundo rustica et P. subis (Hirundinidae); Harpyrhynchoides zumpti (Fain, 1972) (Harpirhynchidae) ex Quiscalus quiscula (Icteridae); Syringophilopsis icteri sp.nov. (Syringophilidae) ex Icterus galbula (Icteridae); Syringophilopsis troglodytis (Fritsch, 1958) ex Troglodytes aedon (Troglodytidae); Syringophilopsis dendroicae sp.nov. ex Dendroica coronata (Parulidae); Syringophiloidus minor (Berlese, 1887) (Syringophilidae) ex Passer domesticus (Ploceidae); Syringophiloidus motacillae Bochkov et Mironov, 1998 ex Zonotrichia albicollis (Emberizidae); Syringophiloidus seiuri (Clark, 1964) dont la femelle y est redécrite et le mâle, décrit pour la première fois, ex Seiurus aurocapillus (Parulidae). Syringophilopsis elongatus (Ewing, 1911) (Syringophilidae) est signalé ici chez ex Q. quiscula, et il a déjà été trouvé sur le Merle aux ailes rouges, Agelaius phoeni cius, au Manitoba.
