Description of Ophthalmodex apodemi sp. n. (Acari: Demodecidae) from the ocular area of Apodemus sylvaticus (Rodentia: Muridae) with notes on pathogenicity
The mite O. apodemi sp. nov. is described from the ocular area of A. sylvaticus taken in southern Bohemia, Czech Republic. This is the first report of the genus Ophthalmodex from rodents. Most mites were located in the lacrimal ducts plugging and dilating the lumen; there was some hyperplasia of the duct epithelium or its flattening due to pressure atrophy, as well as some cellular destruction in places of close apposition of the mite mouthparts or legs against the epithelium.
