Abstract

Cytonyssus troglodyti sp. n. is described from the nasal passages of the Carolina wren, Thryothorus ludovicianus, from Louisiana. Although similar to both Cytonyssus andrei and C. temenuchi, the new species differs in the structure of the chelicera, the shape of the dorsal punctate areas, the chaetotaxy and solenidiotaxy of the legs, and the shape of the idiosoma. This is the first report of this genus from the Troglodytidae and from North America.
