Psitticimex uritui ( Lent & Abalos, 1946)

Río Negro: Atlantic coast, easternmost kilometre of the colony (41 º 3 ’ S, 62 º 48 ’ W) ( Masello & Quillfeldt 2004); 3 km west of the mouth of the Río Negro River, 30 km southeast from Viedma (41 º04´S, 62 º 50´W), very high numbers ( Masello et al. 2006).

In both works ( Masello & Quillfeldt 2004; Masello et al. 2006), P. u r i t u i was identified by Juergen Deckert (Museum fur Naturkunde, Berlin).

Note: Specimens of P. u r i t u i had been found in regurgitated foods of parrots’ nestlings, possibly as a consecuence of a cleaning behavior (Aramburú & Corbalán 2000; Aramburú et al. 2000). This can only occur by the presence of P. uritui in the respective nests. The same occurs with the nymphs obtained from nestlings ( Aramburú et al. 2003).
