Abstract: Se describe un brote de sarna Knemidocoptic causada por Knemidocoptes pilae en periquitos australianos enjaulados (Melopsittacus undulatus), del parque público de L'Eliana (Valencia, España). Cinco individuos (5 de 70) muestran una malformación severa del pico, afectados por rhamphotheca, rhinotheca, y gnathotheca y una ligera desviación lateral de la mandíbula, que no impide, sin embargo, la alimentación o el aseo.
