Notes on African Haemaphysalis ticks: XVI. H. (Rhipistoma) subterra sp. n., a new member of the leachi group (Ixodoidea: Ixodidae)
TLDR
This species is a small-sized member of the H. leachi group with 3/3 dental formula, curving ventral spurs on palpal segment 3, and a moderately punctated scutum. Expand
Embryonic development of the camel tick hyalomma dromedarii (ixodoidea: ixodidae)
Abstract The embryology of Hyalomma dromedarii was investigated by studying serial sections of softened chorion eggs. Embryo size changes were recorded. Cleavage began within 3 hrs after ovipositionExpand
NOTES ON AFRICAN HAEMAPHYSALIS TICKS. XIV. DESCRIPTION OF ADULTS OF H. (RHIPISTOMA) PARALEACHI SP. N., A CARNIVORE PARASITE OF THE H. (R.) LEACHI GROUP (IXODOIDEA: IXODIDAE)
TLDR
A large-sized member of the H. (R.) leachi group of African carnivore parasites with a 5/5 or 6/6 dental formula; moderately long, curving ventral spurs of palpal segment 3; and numerous, mostly medium-sized scutal punctations is described. Expand
Notes on African Haemaphysalis ticks: XI. H. (Rhipistoma) paraleachi (Ixodoidea: Ixodidae) distribution and hosts of adults
TLDR
Host and distribution data are described for 1,573 male and 439 female Haemaphysalis (Rhipistoma) paraleachi collected from 158 hosts representing at least 23 vertebrate species over a wide ecological range in Africa. Expand
Molecular markers of some tick genera in Egypt based on the internal transcribed spacer (ITS-2): 1- Ixodidae (Boophilus and Hyalomma)
TLDR
A method for the identification of three ixodid tick species; the cow tick, camel tick and the cattle tick based on restriction enzyme analysis of the second internal transcribed spacer (ITS-2) in the nuclear ribosomal DNA was adopted. Expand
Frequency of Autogeny in Wild-Caught Egyptian Phlebotomus Papatasi (Scopoli) (Diptera: Psychodidae)
TLDR
F1 progeny of field-collected P. papatasi were studied to determine their ability to survive and breed autogenously, and showed signs of adaptation for survival of some progeny through periods without a bloodmeal source. Expand
Studies of autogeny in Phlebotomus papatasi (Scopoli) (Diptera: Psychodidae).
TLDR
Autogeny appears to be an emergency survival phenomenon that enables P. papatasi to maintain a viable population during periods when no bloodmeal is available and produces fewer eggs than do normally-fed control females. Expand
Haemaphysalis (Herpetobia) Himalaya Hoogstraal (Ixodoidea : Ixodidae), description of immature stages, hosts, and distribution.
TLDR
From study of recently acquired nymphs and larvae of other species categorized in the subgenus Haemaphysalis Koch it appears that systematic concepts concerning these two subgenera may require revision. Expand
A preliminary study on the DNA-vaccine for chicken protection against tick Argas persicus (Oken, 1818)
TLDR
The absence of non-specific reaction against the H. dromedarii gut protein proved that the antibodies in the serum of the DNA vaccinated chicken were specific for the A. persicus gut proteins, indicating the development of the immune defense of the chicken against ticks. Expand
