Title : Parasites of kagu (Rhinochetos jubatus), a bird from New Caledonia.
Authors : F. BEUGNET, R. GADAT, L. CHARDONNET et G. HUNT.
Summary : The Kagu is an endemic bird from New Caledonia. One trematode Brachylaemidae, one cestode Dilepididae and two nematodes, a Capillariidae and an Heterakidae, have been detected. The only isolated ectoparasite is a Dipteran Hippoboscidae. The specificity of parasites of Kagu should be examined. The incidence of parasitism on the population of birds is discussed. Cagourakis dorsalata is seen on all two years old or more Kagus. A coproscopic study showed a variation of bird infestation during the year.
Keywords : Rhynochetos jubatus - parasites - New Caledonia - kagu.
