Individual and geographical variability of male conscutum pattern in five closely related species of the Dermacentor marginatus complex (D. marginatus, D. ushakovae, D. niveus, D. silvarum, D. nuttalli) has been examined. The pattern has been examined in three to six geographical samples within each specific distribution range. It was established that the pattern of the conscutum central area is subjected to individual and geographical variability on an extreme degree and gives very few… CONTINUE READING
