Abstract:

Abstract: Lice are highly specialized parasites that spend their entire life cycle on their host. Thus, a particular species of chewing lice is often restricted either to a single host species or to a phylogenetically related species. About 560 species of these insects parasitize mammals exclusively. Cebidicola semiarmatus is one of these species, known to parasitize several primate species of the genus Aloautta. This paper presents the first record of C. semiarmatus parasitizing A. guariba clamintans.

Portugese title: Primer registro de Cebidicola semiarmatus (Phthiraptera: Trichodectidae) en el mono aullador rojo, Alouatta guariba clamintans (Primates: Atelidae) en Brasil

Resumen: Los piojos son parásitos especializados que desarrollan todo su ciclo de vida en el hospedador. Por esta razón, muchas veces una determinada especie de piojo masticador es específica de una especie de hospedador o de otras filogenéticamente cercanas próximas. Alrededor de 560 especies de piojos parasitan exclusivamente mamíferos. Cebidicola semiarmatus, es una de ellas, caracterizada por parasitar primates del género Aloautta. Este trabajo constituye el primer registro de C. semiarmatus parasitando A. guariba clamintans.
