Literak, O. Sychra and M. Capek GoogleMaps ; 4 males and 10 females (ZISP 6541–6554), same host and collection data.

This species is associated with various manakins ( Passeriformes : Pipridae ). Originally, it was described from Pipra aureola (Linnaeus) (type host) in Cayenne (French Guiana) and Ceratopipra erythrocephala (Linnaeus) in “Guyanes” (French Guiana or neighboring territories) ( Trouessart, 1885). Later on, it was recorded from several more species of manakins from South America ( Berla 1959a; Atyeo & Gaud 1968; Enout et al. 2012; Silva et al. 2015) ( Table 1). This is the first finding of this mite in Costa Rica and the first records on Chiroxiphia linearis (Bonaparte) and Corapipo altera Hellmayr.
