This species shows tendency to host specificity, as previous studies only recorded its occurrence in Tolypeutinae and Euphractinae armadillos, despite one report in Conepatus suffocans (Illiger, 1811) (Carnivora Bowdich, 1821: Mephitidae Bonaparte, 1845) (Travassos, 1937) that is probably due to pseudoparasitism.
