About this book

Language: French

Continuing a general review of feather mites parasitic on birds from Africa, the author presents a study of Analgoïdea harvested from the Charadriiformes. The feather fauna of these birds is remarkably rich and varied. It is not uncommon to find five different species of mites on the same host, sometimes six, seven or even eight. A total of one hundred parasitic Sarcoptiformes species are likely to occur in Africa and 63 species have been actually harvested. All major Analgoïdea families are represented among Charadriiformes. However, Avenzoariidae (Avenzoariinae) and Pterolichidae (Magimeliinae and Syringobiinae) are particularly characteristic of the mite fauna of the Charadriiformes. This mite fauna is quite unique, though has it members in common with that of Alciformes, Lariformes and, to a lesser degree, Gruiformes. 24 new species are described in this work, which finishes with an identification key.

Summary in French:
Poursuivant une révision générale des Sarcoptiformes plumicoles parasites des oiseaux d'Afrique, l'auteur présente une étude des Analgoïdea récoltés sur les Charadriiformes. La faune plumicole de ces oiseaux est remarquablement riche et variée. Il n'est pas rare de trouver cinq espèces différentes d'acariens sur un même hôte, parfois six, sept et même huit. Au total, une centaine d'espèces de Sarcoptiformes parasites sont susceptibles de se rencontrer en Afrique et 63 espèces ont déjà été effectivement récoltées. Toutes les grandes familles d'Analgoïdea sont représentées chez les Charadriiformes. Toutefois les Avenzoariidae (Avenzoariinae) et les Pterolichidae (Magimeliinae et Syringobiinae) sont particulièrement caractéristiques de l'acarofaune des Charadriiformes. Cette acarofaune est assez originale, quoique ayant des points communs avec celle des Alciformes, celle des Lariformes et, à un moindre degré, celle des Gruiformes. 24 espèces nouvelles sont décrites dans ce travail, que terminent des clefs d'identifícation.
