role of hippoboscidae flies as potential vectors of bartonella spp. infecting wild and domestic ruminants.the putative role of biting flies in bartonella transmission among ruminants was investigated. amplification of the bartonella citrate synthase gene from 83 hippoboscidae was detected in 94% of 48 adult lipoptena cervi flies, 71% of 17 adult hippobosca equina flies, 100% of 20 adult melophagus ovinus flies, and 100% of 10 m. ovinus pupae. our findings suggest that hippoboscidae play a role in the transmission of bartonella among ruminants. the vertical transmission of bartonella in m. ovinus and ...200415466580
