Abstract

Species of Demodex live in hair follicles and sebaceous glands of many species of mammals. Demodex macaci n .sp. is described (all life stages) from a captive rhesus monkey, Macaca mulatta (Zimmermann, 1780). Mites were found at all levels of the hair follicles and occasionally in sebaceous glands of the skin of the perineal region. This is the first description of a demodectic hair follicle mite from the primate family Cercopithecidae.
