Abstract

We report knemidokoptiasis in a wild male Little Spiderhunter (Arachnothera longirostra cinereicollis; family Nectariniidae; order Passeriformes) from Jambi, Sumatra, Indonesia, in September 2017. Microscopic examination of a scraping from its leg lesion revealed the presence of Knemidocoptes jamaicensis as the cause of the condition.
