Abstract

Alien species are considered a cause of biodiversity loss throughout the world. An important but often overlooked

from their native ranges (spillover) or get native parasites from native species, thus increasing the parasites’ spread and

and to possibly prevent impacts. Ring-necked and monk parakeets have been introduced in many European countries,

parakeets from Italy and identified 35 arthropod ectoparasites belonging to five species. Amongst those, one species was

and one species from South America (Paragoniocotes fulvofasciatus), which is typically found of the monk parakeet

suggesting the possibility of spillback processes.
