Abstract

Sixteen species of ectoparasites were collected from 50 wild rodents, from August
 1990 to August 1991, in an area of Araucaria augustifolia forest, in the municipality
 of Tijucas do Sul, State of Paraná, Brazil. Ectoparasites infested 98% of the rodents,
 with the highest indices of infestation found in the dry-cool season. Species that occurred in
 single or multiple infestations were recorded. Ectoparasite/host associations were
 significant (p<0.01) for Gigantolaelaps wolffsohni/Oryzomys nigripes, Polygenis
 pradoi/Oxymycterus sp. and Amblyopinus sp./Oxymycterus sp. The
 following represent new host records: Polygenis (Polygenis) tripus from
 Akodon serrensis and Hoplopleura sciuricola from Sciurus aestuans. New
 geographic records are given for two species of flea and one sucking lice.
