Abstract

Bovine chorioptic mange, caused by Chorioptes texanus (Hirst, 1 924) is reported. Eighty three (80,5 %) out of 103 Israeli Friesian herds, surveyed in the years 1983-1987, were found infested. Most of the animals infested were cows while prevalence in female calves and heifers was much lower (81,9 %, 12% and 6% of the infested herds respectively). In most cases the lesions were limited to the root of the tai! and the escutcheon. Three cases of generalized chorioptic mange were registered in the infested herds. The clinical manifestations are described. The taxonomie characters of C. texanus are described and compared to those of C. bovis found in Israel in sheep and goats.
