A Revised Diagnosis of the Feather Mite Genus Magimelia Gaud, 1961 (Pterolichoidea: Pterolichidae: Magimeliinae) and the Description of Three New Species

Jacek Dabert et al. Syst Parasitol.

Abstract

Three new mite species of the genus Magimelia (Astigmata: Pterolichidae) are described from the plumage of various lapwings (Charadriidae: Vanellinae): M. breviloba n. sp. from Vanellus miles miles; M. thailandica n. sp. from V. indicus (type-host), V. duvaucelii and V. tricolor; and M. chilensis n. sp. from V. chilensis. An extended host range for M. dolichosikya Gaud, 1961 is given. A revised diagnosis of the genus and a key to known species are presented.
