Only two genera of the family Nycteribiidae are catalogued in Colombia, Basilia, with seven species, and Hershkovitzia, with only one species. This is the first report of Basilia mimoni in Colombia.

ectoparasite, the bat fly (Diptera: Nycteribiidae). This thesis describes the ecology and evolution of Polychromophilus spp. and how their coevolution with bat flies has shaped these processes. To find the evolutionary origin of Polychromophilus, I construct a phylogenetic analysis of the order of Haemosporida, based on three genes.   Nycteribiidae, or bat flies, is a small family of Diptera that are exclusively ectoparasitic upon bats. The Nycteribiidae, along with three other fly families (Streblidae, Hippoboscidae, and Glossinidae), are members of the calyptrate superfamily Hippoboscoidea.

By Maurits A. Lieftinck Philippine Batflies of the Family Nycteribiidae (Diptera, Pupipara). INTRODUCTION. Bat flies are a diverse group of obligate ectoparasites that feed exclusively on bat blood (1, 2).Based on current taxonomy, they comprise two families, the Nycteribiidae and the Streblidae ().As blood-feeders, they rely on a nutritionally deficient diet; hence, they are expected to have formed symbiotic relationships with mutualistic bacteria (4–9).

Bat flies infest exclusively bats and, like all members of the superfamily Hippoboscoidea, reproduce via viviparous puparity. They belong to two families: Streblidae and Nycteribiidae. Streblidae bat flies have functional wings, while Nycteribiidae flies have a spider-like appearance and are wingless, as an extreme adaptation to ectoparasitism.   We present information on Nycteribiidae flies parasitizing the bat families Pteropodidae, Miniopteridae and Vespertilionidae from the Malagasy Region, contributing insight into their diversity and host preference. Our phylogenetic analysis identified nine clusters of nycteribiid bat flies on Madagascar and the neighbouring Comoros Archipelago. Bat flies sampled from frugivorous bats of the.   The family Streblidae, or bat flies, is a small family of Diptera containing members that are exclusively ectoparasitic upon bats. The Streblidae, along with three other fly families (Nycteribiidae, Hippoboscidae, and Glossinidae), are members of the calyptrate superfamily Hippoboscoidea.
