Fourteen mite species were removed from infested birds and identified as follows: Leptotrombidium (Ericotrombidium) limpidum Kudryashova, 1976, Harpyrhynchoides rubeculinus Cerny and Sixl, 1971, Neoschoengastia longitarsalis Schluger and Belskaj, 1966, Ptilonyssus pirangae Cerny, 1969, Ptilonyssus hirsti Castro and Pareira, 1947, Ptilonyssus icteridius Strandtmann and Furman, 1956, Proctophyllodes stylifer Buhholz, 1869, Proctophyllodes clavatus Fritsch, 1961, Proctophyllodes truncatus Robin, 1877, Proctophyllodes orientalis Gaud, 1953, Dolichodectes edwardsi Trouessart, 1885, Strelkoviacarus critesi Spory 1965, Dermanyssus brevis Ewing, 1936 and Ornithonyssus sylviarum Canestrini and Fanzago, 1877.
