Abstract

A total of 145 ectoparasites was found on five pups of the Indiana bat, Myotis sodalis, from a roost in Warren County, in southwestern Ohio. Most were Macronyssus crosbyi, the common mite of this host, but three males, two nymphs and a nonengorged female of Paraspinturnix globosa were found. Males and nymphs of this species have not previously been reported. In addition, two female adults of Paraspinturnix globosa were found in the anus of one adult female. The male, female deutonymph and nongravid engorged female of P. globosa are described for the first time.
