There are also a couple of books dedicated to the study of herp parasitology. Roger Klingenberg, wrote a book called “Understanding Reptile Parasites: A Basic Manual for Herpetoculturist and Veterinarians”. It is also fully illustrated so if you need images, there’s a new source for you. There is also a book called “Reptile and Amphibian Parasites”. It is by Eric Rundquist. I am not real sure about the content of this book. Another reference you might try is “A Veterinary Guide to the Parasites of Reptiles: arthropods” This publication EXCLUDES mites. It was written by Susan M. Barnard (Assistant Curator of Herpetology at the Atlanta Zoo), Lance A. Durden (A Biologist at the Institute of Arthropodology and Parasitology, Southern Georgia University), and Steve J. Upton. This may very well give you the most comprehensive information you need (at least on the arthropods found in herptiles). Also “A Veterinary Guide to the Parasites of Reptiles: Protozoa”. This book, also be by Susan M. Barnard and Steve J. Upton, will definitely give you the most comprehensive information in regards to the study of herptile protozoa.
