FURNARIIDAE

Anumbius annumbi (Vieillot, 1817)

ORTHOPTERA : Gryllidae

Gryllus argentinus Saussure, 1874

URUGUAY, Dto. Artigas, on the border with Brazil [Rio Grande do Sul: Municipio de Uruguaiana], 30 examined nests ( Salvatella et al. 1991).

Undetermined species

URUGUAY, Dto. San José, río San José, Paso del Rey, 1 ex. in 2 examined nests ( Achaval 1972).

COLEOPTERA

Undetermined species

URUGUAY, Dto. Artigas ( Rosa et al. 1997).

Carabidae

Lebia venustula Dejean, 1831

(Cicchino et al. 2003).

Buenos Aires ( Cicchino & Saini 2006).

Remarks: the record made by Cicchino et al. (2003) in birds´nests was from a previously identified specimen in the private collection of Gastón Zubaran, who collected it in a nest of A. annumbi in Campo de Mayo, Buenos Aires province, 1992, in company of O.R. Di Iorio (pers. obs.).

Chrysomelidae

Botanochara angulata (Germar, 1824)

Córdoba: near estación Barreto, F.C.B.A.P., Estancia La Magdalena, 379 exx. in 1 examined nest ( Mac Donagh [1940] 1943); [locality not specified], 195 exx. (Nores 1993).

Botanochara bonariensis (Boheman, 1850)

URUGUAY ( Panzera et al. 1983); Dto. Artigas, frontier zone with Brazil [Rio Grande do Sul: Municipio de Uruguaiana], 30 examined nests ( Salvatella et al. 1991).

Botanochara duodecimverrucata (Boheman, 1850)

URUGUAY, Dto. San José, río San José, Paso del Rey, 58 exx. in 2 examined nests ( Achaval 1972).

Note: species erroneously named as " verrucata (Boheman)", an non-existent specific name, probably B. duodecimverrucata , distributed in Uruguay ( Blackwelder 1946).

Botanochara sp.

URUGUAY ( Panzera et al. 1983).

Note: Following these authors, “ Botanochara sp. was identified as B. angulata but differences between the kariotypes of the two species invalidate the identification. Morphological similarities make them sibling species”.

“ Eriosps sp.”

Córdoba [locality not specified], 42 exx. (Nores 1993).

Note: This generic name is non-existent and is referred to as a chrysomelid beetle. It is probable that it may be a misidentification and mislabeling of Eriopis , a ladybird [ Coccinellidae ], sometimes confused with leaf beetles [ Chrysomelidae ] by the elongated body shape.

Lema bilineata (Germar, 1823)

Córdoba: near estación Barreto, F.C.B.A.P., Estancia La Magdalena, 17 exx. in 1 examined nest ( Mac Donagh [1940] 1943).

URUGUAY ( Panzera et al. 1983); Dto. Artigas: frontier zone with Brazil [Rio Grande do Sul: Municipio de Uruguaiana], 30 examined nests ( Salvatella et al. 1991).

Note: Panzera et al. (1983) found two morphs hibernating inside the nests, “one of these color morphs resembles Botanochara bonariensis [ Stolas lacordairei var lacordairei ], while the other is metallic blue to green [ Stolas lacordairei var. subrugosa ]. No citogenetic differences between the two forms were observed”.

From the infested chicks, 20 of them flew, and the remaining 9 died. In some cases, the same chick was infested simultaneously by larvae of both Philornis species, but the infested nests were not discriminated by species of Philornis .

Philornis sp.

Buenos Aires: Ea. La Candelaria, 35 ° 15´S, 59 ° 13´W ( Fraga 1984); Lobos (Couri et al. 2005, following Fraga 1984); Fig. 8 View FIGURE 8 ; Pdo. Magdalena, Ea. El Talar (Mason 1985; Couri et al. 2005, as “Magdalena”).

Triatoma sordida garciabesi Carcavallo, Cichero, Martínez, Prosen & Ronderos, 1967

= Triatoma guasayana [non Wygdzinsky & Abalos, 1949]

Córdoba: [locality not specified], between 1 and 5 exx. in 5 of 13 examined nests (Nores 1993).

Note: Triatoma guasayana was never found in birds’ nests from Argentina, but was recorded in natural habitats such as dried cacti and bromeliads, logs and underground burrows ( Vezzani et al. 2001). The record mentioned by Nores (1993) is probably an erroneous identification of Triatoma sordida garciabesi , which is found in birds’ nests in several provinces in the country, including Córdoba ( Carcavallo & Cichero 1963; Cichero et al. 1984; Carcavallo et al. 1988).

Note: Mazza & Schreiber (1936) mention the nests of Malabrigo (Santa Fe) as of “ Dendrocolaptidae ”, illustrated in the figs. 21, 22 y 23 (it can be inferred by the figures that these nests belong to Furnariidae ). Afterwards they state that “from the proximities of one of them (fig. 21) was shoot one specimen of the furnarid Phacellodomus silibatrix [sic] ( Dendrocolaptidae , determination was doing by Mr. Pedro Serié)”. They add “is related the frequent presence of Triatoma platensis in nests of Dendrocolaptidae ( Phacellodomus silibatrix )” implying that all nests of Dendrocolaptidae seen in Malabrigo were of P. s i b i l i a t r i x. Later on, some of the same nests of Malabrigo were referred to as just ‘birds’ nests’ by Mazza & Jorg (1938) (Table 1).

Note: Nores (1993) found the two species of Philornis in 11 nests of a total of 67 examined nests, or in 26 infested chicks (18.05 %) from a total of 144.
