Psorergatidae 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
