BRAZIL: Amazonas: near Manaus, municipality of Iranduba, near the meeting of the rivers Negro and Solimões, III-02 to VI-02, from a total of 9 nests [6 from Marchantaria (3 º 14 ’ 17 ’’ S, 59 º 57 ’ 00’’ W), 3 from Xiborena (3 º 10 ’ 04’’ S, 59 º 55 ’ 02’’ W)] ( Gouveia et al. 2012).

Gnorimopsar chopi (Vieillot, 1819) 

DIPTERA  : Muscidae 

Philornis angustifrons (Loew, 1861) 

BRAZIL: Distrito Federal: Brasilia, Zoologico, May [2009 or 2010], on [6?] nestlings ( Canzi 2011).

Molothrus oryzivorus (Gmelin, 1788) 

DIPTERA  : Muscidae 

Philornis  spp.

ARGENTINA: Misiones: [localities not discriminated], 8 botfly larvae observed on a cowbird nestling at 4 days of age with a body mass of 41.5 g; number of visible larvae increased to 19 and nestling body mass increased to 51 g at 6 days later; other cowbird nestling infested with botflies prior to this study in one of the colonies, Jorge Anfuso and Silvia Elsegood, pers. comm. ( Fraga 2011 a); nestlings parasitized by the larvae ( Fraga 2011 b).

Psarocolius montezuma (Lesson, 1830) 

[ DIPTERA  : Muscidae  ]

[ Philornis  sp.]

= “colmoyotes ( Dermatobia  sp.)”: Solorio 1994: 272 [host]

MEXICO: Quintana Roo: Bacalar, Campo Experimental Forestal San Felipe Bacalar (18 º 46 ’ N, 88 º 17 ’ W), III- 1986 to IV- 1992, two nestlings on the ground below a colony with “endoparasites,” each one with approx. 6 “colmoyotes” distributed in wings, neck, and legs ( Solorio 1994).

Note: The larvae of Dermatobia  [ Diptera  : Cuterebridae  ] produce subcutaneous myiasis exclusively on mammals, including humans ( Guimarães & Papavero 1999). Without doubt, Solorio (1994) observes a species of Philornis  with subcutaneous larvae.
