Studies of infestations on Tropiduridae lizards undertaken in Brazil have previously identified only a single parasite, the trombicuilid Eutrombicula alfreddugesi (Cunha-Barros and Rocha, 2000; Cunha-Barros et al., 2003; Carvalho et al., 2006; Rocha et al., 2008).

Eutrombicula alfreddugesi is an ectoparasitic chigger mite of a large number of amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals (Philips, 2000; de Carvalho et al., 2006; Lareschi, 2006; Paredes-Leon et al., 2006, 2008; Rubio and Simonetti, 2009).
Mites were identified as Eutrombicula alfreddugesi following Hoffmann (1990), based on characters such as five scutal setae, the pedipal formula B/N(B)/NNB, 22 dorsal setae (2 humerals +6,6,4,2,2), three genuelae I, one mastitarsala, and absence of mastitibiala.
