Trapping oestrid parasites of reindeer: the response of Cephenemyia
trompe and Hypoderma tarandi to baited traps.
This report provides new records of mixed Cephenemyia spp.
Members of the genus Cephenemyia (Diptera: Oestridae) are stout bee-like flies (Fig.
Four species of Cephenemyia have been documented in the south-central and southeast-central regions of Texas (Fig.
phobifer (17%), providing another example of mixed Cephenemyia spp.
Distributions of several species within the genus Cephenemyia overlap, and mixed infections among cervid hosts may be common, but comprehensive ranges of Cephenemyia spp.
This species, Cephenemyia
albina Taber and Fleenor, appears to he the sister species of Michigan's Cephenemyia
phobifeta (Clark), a parasitoid that attacks white-tailed deer when the fly is in its larval stage.

krabbei, Echinoccocus granulosus, Thysanosoma actinioides, Orthostrongylus macrotis, Parelaphostrongylus tenuis, Elaeophora schneideri, Onchocerca cervipedis, Setaria yehi, Rumenfilaria andersoni, Dermacentor albipictus, Cephenemyia
and the nose bot fly Cephenemyia
trompe (Modeer) (Diptera: Oestridae) from reindeer.
Two parasitic insects (Hypoderma tarandi and Cephenemyia trompe, Diptera, Oestridae) could also represent a serious nuisance in July and August during egg (H.
Two specimens, one female of Hypoderma tarandi and one female of Cephenemyia trompe, were captured near a caribou group under severe harassment on 19 July.
