Abstract

The prevalence and intensity of infestations by bot flies Pharyngomyia picta and Cephenemyia auribarbis in red deer (Cervus elaphus) from Quintos de Mora (Toledo, Spain) were determined over a 1-yr period. Bots were present all year. No clear correlations were found between age or sex of the host and parasitization levels (prevalence and intensity). Considerable variation was found in prevalence and intensity, with larger values from December to March. Cephenemyia auribarbis was restricted from November to March, with maximum numbers of L-3 in February. Pharyngomyia picta showed a more complex profile with 2 peaks (March and August), indicating 2 generations per year.
