Ectoparasitic flies (Diptera, Streblidae) on bats (Mammalia, Chiroptera) in the State Forest of Assis with a species checklist from São Paulo, Brazil
Inventories of bat flies from the state of São Paulo are scarce, especially in the Cerrado ecoregion. Thus, we described the bat flies community in the State Forest of Assis, located in the municipality of Assis, São Paulo (Brazil). 34 specimens of six bat flies species were recorded in the study area. The Trichobius propinquus flies, as well as its first association with the bat species Anoura caudifer, are recorded for the first time in São Paulo. In addition, we present a checklist of the bat flies species (Streblidae), with a total of 38 species recognized in the São Paulo State.
