Arboviruses of the Tete group (Tete, Bahig, Matruh, Tsuruse) were previously recorded only from avian blood and organs from South Africa, Egypt, Italy, and Japan. We report Bahig virus, identified by complement-fixation and neutralization teats, from 2 subspecies ofHyalomma marginatum (family Ixodidae) ticks. One isolate was from larvae of the African subspecies,H. marginatum rufipes Koch, parasitizing a northward-migrating common wheatear,Oenanthe oenanthe subsp., in Egypt. Other isolates were… 

Tick-borne viruses in Europe

Background information on 27 tick-borne viruses (“tiboviruses”) that have been detected in Europe is presented, with emphasis on the taxonomic status of these viruses, range of their ixodid or argasid vectors and vertebrate hosts, pathogenicity for vertebrates including humans, and relevance to public health.

Genetic and Phylogenetic Characterization of Tataguine and Witwatersrand Viruses and Other Orthobunyaviruses of the Anopheles A, Capim, Guamá, Koongol, Mapputta, Tete, and Turlock Serogroups

The results emphasize the high genetic diversity of orthobunyaviruses and reveal that the presence of the small nonstructural protein (NSs)-encoding open reading frame is not as common in orthobUNyavirus genomes as previously thought.

Are Wild Birds Important in the Transport of Arthropod-borne Viruses?

The movements of migratory birds represent a major way that these viruses can be transported on a local, continental, and intercontinental scale, and virus transport by birds can explain the colonization of new geographic regions by arboviruses.


The potential for transport and dissemination of certain pathogenic microorganisms by migratory birds is of concern. Migratory birds might be involved in dispersal of microorganisms as their

Climate change and species distribution: possible scenarios for thermophilic ticks in Romania.

Several zoonotic tick-borne diseases are emerging in Europe due to various factors, including changes of the cultural landscape, increasing human populations, variation of social habits and climate

Development of Animal Viruses and Rickettsiae in Ticks and Mites

In this paper, a more or less complete survey of the recent knowledge of the mechanisms of growth and development of viruses and rickettsiae in ticks and hematophagous mites is intended.
