1983 - Volume: 24 Issue: 4 pages: 403-415
KeywordsPsorergatidae insectivora host-parasite parallel evolution
Two new species are described and figured: Psorergates urotrichi ex Urotrichus talpoides Temmninck, and Psorergates cryptotis ex Cryptotis nigrescens Allen. Specimens from Crocidura lasiura Dobson are similar to Psorergates crocidurae Lukoschus, 1968, ex Crocidura russula (Hermann). A key to the species from Insectivora hasts is given, and the parallel evolution of hasts and parasites is discussed
