First record of Blue-Crowned Parrot Aratinga a. acuticaudata (Aves: Psittacidae) as primary
native host of Ornithocoris toledoi Pinto (Cimicidae: Hemiptera: Heteroptera). The primary
natural host of cimicid bug Ornithocoris toledoi Pinto (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Cimicidae) is presented as Blue-
Crowned Parrot Aratinga a. acuticaudata (Aves: Psittacidae). Its presence in the Chaco province is also a new
distributional record of this bug in Argentina. A brief discussion about the taxonomy is also given and some population
parameters are compared with those of other bug species. Finally, we discuss possible infestation ways in
the current state of knowledge, including other birds (Furnariidae) and bats (Chiroptera).
