trypanoxyuris atelis and t. atelophora (nematoda: oxyuridae) in wild spider monkeys (ateles geoffroyi) in tropical rain forest in mexico: morphological and molecular evidence.two species of pinworms, trypanoxyuris atelis and trypanoxyuris atelophora were collected from the black-handed spider monkey (ateles geoffroyi) in several localities across southeastern mexico, representing the first record for both species in mexican primates. identification of pinworm species was based on morphological and molecular data. these pinworms are distinguished from other congeners, and from each other, by the buccal structure, the lateral alae, and the morphology of the oesophagus. ...201525748278
lack of genetic structure in pinworm populations from new world primates in forest fragments.microevolutionary processes in parasites are driven by factors related to parasite biology, host abundance and dispersal, and environmental conditions. here, we test the prediction that isolation of host populations results in reduced genetic diversity and high differentiation among parasite populations. we conducted a population genetic analysis of two pinworms, trypanoxyuris minutus and trypanoxyuris atelis, commonly found parasitizing howler and spider monkeys in tropical rainforests across s ...201728855143
genetic identification of an oxyurid from a captive, black-handed spider monkey--implications for treatment and control.parasites are of major clinical significance in captive primates in zoos, particularly those with direct life cycles. oxyurid nematodes can be a persistent problem, as infection intensity and environmental contamination with infective eggs are usually high. observations at the basel zoo in switzerland have revealed that particularly black-handed spider monkeys (ateles geoffroyi) exhibit continuous oxyurid nematode infection(s), despite regular deworming with anthelmintics. in the present study, ...201425070576
