GARCIA FERRER, Yenisey; RODRIGUEZ GARCIA, Daisy  y  PINO QUINTANA, Yanaisy. Ectoparasites in birds of the genus Agapornis in captivity in Havana, Cuba. Rev. investig. vet. Perú [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.3, pp.1043-1051. ISSN 1609-9117.  http://dx.doi.org/10.15381/rivep.v29i3.14767.

The objective of this study was to determine the extent and intensity of ectoparasite load affecting birds bred in captivity of the genus Agapornis. Fifty birds aged 8-9 months, from three hatcheries in Havana, Cuba were sampled. Feathers of both wings were collected. The mites Pterophagus spp, Dubininia melopsittaci, mites of the Pterolichoidea superfamily and the louse of the Philopteridae family were found. The association of Pterophagus spp and the mite of the superfamily Pterolichoidea presented the highest frequency. The most extensively invasive parasites were Pterophagus spp and mites of the Pterolichoidea superfamily. The intensity of invasion was slight for the louse of the family Philopteridae, with respect to mites, which were found with levels from very mild to very severe.

Palabras clave : Agapornis; Pterophagus; Dubininia melopsittaci; Pterolichoidea; Philopteridae.
