BITTENCOURT, AVELINO J.  e  MOYA BORJA, GONZALO E.. Stomoxys calcitrans (L.): FEEDING SITES PREFERRED ON EQUINE BODY. Parasitol. día [online]. 2000, vol.24, n.3-4, pp.119-122. ISSN 0716-0720.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-07202000000300010.

To study which anatomic parts of horses are preferred by the stable fly Stomoxys calcitrans, for feeding, three males and two females were exposed to natural infestations in Espirito Santo do Pinhal County, São Paulo State, Brazil. The number of stable flies were weekly registered in six anatomic areas (head, neck, thorax, thoracic and pelvic members and abdomen) from May 1993 to April 1995. Significant differences were observed among infested areas and stable flies prefer the thoracic members for feeding. Within the thoracic members the shin region was more preferred.
