The 1981 annotated checklist of Tenquist and Charleston is completely revised Forty five new records have been added, and recent taxonomic changes are included for both hosts and parasites 

Redescription of the kiwi tick Ixodes anatis (Acari: Ixodidae) from New Zealand, with notes on its biology

TLDR
All life stages of this species are redescribed and accompanied by electron micrographs and drawings, and the systematics, host preferences, distribution, disease relationships and conservation biology of the species are discussed.

A review of ectoparasites of Apteryx spp. (kiwi) in New Zealand, with new host records, and the biology of Ixodes anatis (Acari: Ixodidae)

TLDR
The availability of a good series of the trombiculid Guntheria (Derrickiella) apteryxi Loomis & Goff, 1983 suggests that this mite is likely to be more specific to the kiwi than the mammalian links with other species in this genus would otherwise indicate.

Occurrence of the predatory mite Haemogamasus pontiger (Berlese) (Acari: Laelapidae) in Australia, with a review of its biology

TLDR
There is no convincing evidence that this species is a parasite of mammals, or that it has any medical significance, but behavioural and morphological evidence has shown that it is a predator.

TLDR
It is proposed that, of available wildlife hosts, the brown hare with its wide-ranging habits, is an important disseminator of ticks, especially in the context of seasonal activity as seen in less temperate latitudes.

Modeling the Asian Longhorned Tick (Acari: Ixodidae) Suitable Habitat in North America

  • I. Rochlin

    Journal of Medical Entomology
  • 2018
TLDR
Delineation of areas suitable for H. longicornis in North America can facilitate detection, prepare public health authorities, and inform the general public about this potentially pestiferous and medically important species.

Bovicola tibialis (Phthiraptera: Trichodectidae): Occurrence of an Exotic Chewing Louse on Cervids in North America

TLDR
It is found that the exotic deer-chewing louse, Bovicola tibialis (Piaget), is a long-term, widespread resident in the region and the probability that it occurs even more widely in the United States, and the prospects for it to cause health problems for North American deer.

Demodex melesinus (Acariformes: Demodecidae) — the forgotten European badger parasite, rediscovered after 100 years

TLDR
The current record confirms the existence of D. melesinus, in badger from Poland, after close to one hundred years from its original description, as well as the first detection of the male for this species.
