Transmission of the chelonian haemoproteid Haemoproteus metchnikovi by a tabanid fly Chrysops callidus.
The studies established on DNA based identification of avian Haemoproteid species are very valuable [29].Species identification is based only on the morphology of the gametocytes and their host cells[30].
For Loxigilla noctis, the prevalence of haemoproteid infection did not differ significantly between sites on the same island (habitat effect: [[chi].sup.2] = 0.6, df = 1, P = 0.45), although prevalence did differ significantly between islands (island effect: [[chi].sup.2] = 11.4, df = 2, P = 0.003; Table 2).
There were no discernible differences of intensity of haemoproteid infection among infected individuals of the four species known to be infected (Poisson regression, PROC GENMOD: log-likelihood [[chi].sup.2] = 3.2, df = 3, P [greater than] 0.15).
