Psitticimex uritui  ( Lent & Abalos, 1946)

Note: according to Masello & Quillfeldt (2004), Psitticimex uritui  was the main ectoparasite of nestling burrowing parrots in the studied colony (northeast coastal Patagonia), not quantified in the study but their number were very high at the time of blood sampling in almost all broods. In both works ( Masello & Quillfeldt 2004; Masello et al. 2006), P. u r i t u i was identified by Juergen Deckert (Museum fur Naturkunde, Berlin).

Note: Specimens of P. u r i t u i had been found in regurgitated foods of parrots’ nestlings, possibly as a consecuence of a cleaning behavior (Aramburú & Corbalán 2000; Aramburú et al. 2000). This can only occur by the presence of P. uritui  in the respective nests. The same occurs with the nymphs obtained from nestlings ( Aramburú et al. 2003).
