Glossina palpalis

Body: 

Lives in the more humid areas of West Africa, from Senegal to Cameroon, then south along the coast to Angola. In West Africa it penetrates further to the north in Mali and Senegal, than it does in Nigeria.

Sarcoptes scabiei var. canis

Image: 
Body: 

Sarcoptes scabiei is a cosmopolitan mite species that causes the transmissible ectoparasitic infection scabies. Female mites tunnel into the outer skin layers depositing eggs and feces, which give rise to an intense immune reaction in the host.

Sarcoptes scabiei var. canis typically infects dogs and foxes, but serves as a model for the Sarcoptes scabiei var. hominis (human) infection.

Short Name: 
sscabiei
