The mite genus Parichoronyssus Radovsky (Mesostigmata: Macronyssidae) comprises twelve known species found parasitizing bats in the New World. This study aimed to identify morphologically and molecularly macronyssid mites collected from bats and kept as backlog in the tissue bank (-80C) at the Acarological Collection of the Butantan Institute (IBSP). After the examination, the material was listed and identified as Parichoronyssus bakeri Morales-Malacara and Guerrero. Here, we were able to provide diagnostic microscopic images for the females of this species, as well as molecular information (18S rRNA and 16S rRNA) that were deposited in Genbank for reference. New locality records were also provided for P. bakeri in Rio de Janeiro and Rondônia States, Brazil.
