ANALYSIS OF THE SYSTEMATIC RELATIONSHIPS AMONG TICKS OF THE GENERA RHIPICEPHALUS AND BOOPHILUS (ACARI: IXODIDAE) BASED ON MITOCHONDRIAL 12S RIBOSOMAL DNA GENE SEQUENCES AND MORPHOLOGICAL CHARACTERS
A portion of mitochondrial 12S rDNA sequences (337–355 base pairs) and 63 morphological characters of 36 hard-tick species belonging to 7 genera were analyzed to determine the phylogeneticExpand

Idiosomal lyrifissures, Setae, and small glands as taxonomic characters and potential indicators of ancestral segmentation patterns in larval ixodidae (Acari: Ixodida)
Abstract Variability in idiosomal chaetotaxy, lyrifissure, and gland patterns among ixodid larvae is assessed based on a comparative analysis of these structures in 53 species of ixodid ticks. AExpand
