Resumen

DITTMAR, Katharina. EVALUATION OF ECTOPARASITES ON THE GUINEA PIG MUMMIES OF EL YARAL AND MOQUEGUA VALLEY, IN SOUTHERN PERU. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2000, vol.32, n.1, pp.123-125. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562000000100020.

Generally, well preserved arthropod remains are rarely found among archaeological materials. The outstanding preservation of some mummified guinea pigs from the excavation of El Yaral, an archeological site in the Moquegua Valley in Southern Peru, gave rise to the idea of recovering ectoparasites, that once infested those guinea pigs. Ectoparasites are arthropods, like lice, fleas and mites, who can be a serious threat to animals and humans by causing skin lesions or even transmitting diseases

Palabras clave : Guinea pigs; lice; mites.
