ornithodoros peropteryx (acari: argasidae) in bolivia: an argasid tick with a single nymphal the end of the 1960s, the argasid tick ornithodoros peropteryx was described from larval specimens collected from the bat peropteryx macrotis in colombia. since its original description, no additional record of o. peropteryx has been reported, and its post-larval stages have remained unknown. during july 2010, 18 larvae were collected from 9 bats (centronycteris maximiliani), resulting in a mean infestation of 2.0 ± 2.2 ticks per bat (range 1-8). these bats were captured in a farm in northeas ...201323543273
zoogeography of south american forest-dwelling bats: disjunct distributions or sampling deficiencies?many forest-dwelling bats are purported to be widespread in south america, although records are scant from the vast diagonal belt of dry ecosystems that straddles the continent, implying possible sampling deficiencies. here, we investigate this possibility in the case of four species of bat (centronycteris maximiliani, lampronycteris brachyotis, peropteryx kappleri and trinycteris nicefori), evaluating whether their disjunct present-day distributions reflect their true zoogeographic characterist ...201526186587
