americana is the most common Hippoboscidae
in Strigidae (Maa, 1969).
In this work, we report new host records for the louse fly Ornithoctona fusciventris (Wiedemann, 1830) (Diptera: Hippoboscidae
), the infection prevalence of this fly parasite on birds captured in the surroundings of Xalapa City in the state of Veracruz, Mexico, and a positive infection with haemosporidian parasites for one of the birds parasitized by O.

A monograph of the Melophaginae, or ked-flies, of sheep, goats, deer and antelopes (Diptera, Hippoboscidae
Molecular genetic evidence for a novel bacterial endosymbiont of Icosta americana (Diptera: Hippoboscidae
Haemoproteus is transmitted by sandflies, or biting midges, of the genus Culicoides (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae; Harwood and James 1979, Kettle 1982), and by louse-flies (Diptera: Hippoboscidae
; Kettle 1982), both of which occur in the Lesser Antilles (Bequaert 1954, Wirth 1974).
Some authors even lump the last two mentioned families into the Hippoboscidae
. Nycteribiidae and Streblidae are hematophagous with piecing mouthparts (Holloway 1976; Hutson & Oldroyd 1980a, b), but adults of Mystacinobiidae feeds on guano and are merely phoretic on bats (Holloway 1976).
