Adult Haemaphysalis punctata (Canestrini and Fanzago 1877) collected from an area of rough grazing at Mynydd Mawr, Aberdaron, North Wales, transmitted Theileria recondita (Wales); field-collected nymphs failed to transmit this parasite. Following adult tick infestation, piroplasms were first observed in the blood of splenectomised infested sheep 8 days after tick attachment; the parasitaemia lasted 9 days. The parasite can also be transferred by syringe passage of blood from splenectomised to… CONTINUE READING
