Abstract

The host-parasite associations between bats and chiggers are re-traced; the checklist of reported pair-wise combinations contains records originating from all zoogeographical regions. The data on parasitism of 397 nominal species of Trombiculidae (c. 12% of all species) on 301 bat species and subspecies (c. 30% of described species of Chiroptera), previously scattered around the literature, are compiled.
