Abstract

Two new species of hypopi, Dermacarus norvegiens n. sp. from the nest of an owl, Aegolius Junereus, in Norway and D. alaskensis n. sp. from a woodpecker, Picoides tridactylus, in Alaska are described and figured. The authors believe that the true hosts of these hypopi were probably small rodents which had been in contact with these birds (possibly as prey) or their nests or had utilized their tree-holes at a previous time. © 1979 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
