First record of Cebidicola semiarmatus (Phthiraptera: Trichodectidae) on the red howler monkey, Alouatta guariba clamintans (Primate: Atelidae) in Brazil

Resumen

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.
