Abstract

We analyzed seven bot fly larvae extracted from six howler monkeys (Alouatta palliate) in Los Tuxtlas, Mexico. The spine distribution and structure of the larvae were consistent with those reported for Cuterebra baeri from Panama. This report sets the northern limit for its distribution in the Americas.
