Abstract

© Facultad de Ciencias Bioĺgicas UNMSM. The goal of this research was to increase the knowledge of two parasitic protozoa: Herpetomonas muscarum (Leidy, 1856) Kan, 1880 and Octosporea muscaedomesticae Flu, 1911, in Musca domestica. Both represent new records in Peru. The H. muscarum leptomonad are 36 m long and are larger than the ones cited by other authors. O. muscadomesticae presents large and plasmodial forms slightly larger than the ones studied by Bulnheim & Vavra (1998). In the M. domestica group surveyed, we determined a significant percentage of H. muscarum {5A,0%) and O. muscadomesticae (27,0%).
