Genus: Dermanyssus Dugès, 1834  

Dermanyssus Dugès, 1834: 5   . Type species Acarus gallinae De Geer, 1778   .

Historical reviews of the genus Dermanyssus   can be found in Evans & Till (1962), Moss (1968, 1978) and Roy & Chauve (2007, 2010). The genus includes about 30 valid species from all climatic zones of the world, all of which are obligate haematophagous ectoparasites of birds. Five of these species are credibly recorded from Slovakia, namely D. americanus   , D. carpathicus   , D. chelidonis   , D. gallinae   , and D. hirundinis   . Roy et al. (2009 a, 2010) recorded D. longipes   from Slovakia, but we here consider those specimens to belong to D. hirundinis   (see "Dubious species from Slovakia " below). Nosek & Lichard (1962) identified D. passerinus   from Slovakia, but that record is also regarded as dubious.
