In recent years there has been much progress in our understanding of the phylogeny and evolution of ticks, in particular the hard ticks (Ixodidae). Indeed, a consensus about the phylogeny of the hard ticks has emerged which is quite different to the working hypothesis of 10 years ago. So that the classification reflects our knowledge of ticks, several changes to the nomenclature of ticks are imminent or have been made. One subfamily, the Hyalomminae, should be sunk, while another, the… 
An overview of systematics and evolution of ticks.
TLDR
The origin of ticks is during the pre-mid Cretaceous period (with both the Argasidae and Ixodidae being established in the middleCretaceous).
Molecular Phylogenetic Relationships of North American Dermacentor Ticks Using Mitochondrial Gene Sequences
TLDR
In all analyses, it is found that North American Dermacentor ticks form a monophyletic lineage, and that all four species of one-host Dermocentor ticks also form aMonophyletics lineage within the genus.
Phylogenetic analysis of ticks (Acari: Ixodida) using mitochondrial genomes and nuclear rRNA genes indicates that the genus Amblyomma is polyphyletic.
TLDR
This study presents the nucleotide sequences of the complete mitochondrial genomes of five more species of metastriate ticks and uses complete mitochondrial genome sequences to address the phylogenetic placement of two morphologically 'primitive' species -Am.
Molecular survey of hard ticks in endemic areas of tick-borne diseases in China.
TLDR
All these 7 tick species from China were genetically closely related to the same species or related species found outside China, which will be of significance to the prevention and control of tick-borne diseases in China.
Ticks of the Central African Republic
TLDR
A review is presented of the ticks of the Central African Republic based on unpublished data and a literature review, which considers as established in the C.A.R. two species of Argasidae and 49 species of Ixodidae; some of the species of the genus Haemaphysalis are difficult to identify with certainty and there are only a few species of Hyalomma in the country.
Further thoughts on the taxonomy and vector role of Rhipicephalus sanguineus group ticks.
TLDR
This article provides an account on the taxonomy and the vector role of ticks belonging to the R. sanguineus group in the light of recent research and suggests that the vector competence of these tick species may vary.
Ticks in Australia: endemics; exotics; which ticks bite humans?
TLDR
The latest maps of the geographic distributions of Ixodes holocyclus, Amblyomma t.
Distribution and phylogeny of Hyalomma ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) in Turkey
TLDR
Morphological and molecular analyses demonstrated the presence of four species in Turkey and placed H. asiaticum, H. aegyptium and H. marginatum complex in different clades, but additional analyses with the samples from different locations using different markers need to evaluate the exact status of the species of these groups.
Effects of tectonics and large scale climatic changes on the evolutionary history of Hyalomma ticks.
TLDR
The data supports the notion that tectonic events and large scale global changes in the environment contributed significantly to produce the rich species diversity currently found in the genus Hyalomma and suggests that the taxonomy of these lineages is in need of a revision.
A transcriptome-based phylogenetic study of hard ticks (Ixodidae)
TLDR
This work provides a baseline for studying the evolutionary history of ticks and finds an unexpected acceleration of substitutions for mitochondrial sequences of Prostriata, and for nuclear and mitochondrial genes of two species of Rhipicephalus, which it relates with patterns of genome architecture and changes of life-cycle, respectively.

Phylogeny, Evolution and Historical Zoogeography of Ticks: A Review of Recent Progress
TLDR
The genus Boophilus will probably become a subgenus of Rhipicephalus, and several changes to the nomenclature of ticks are imminent, so that the classification reflects the authors' knowledge of ticks.
Phylogeny of the hard ticks (Ixodidae) inferred from 18S rRNA indicates that the genus Aponomma is paraphyletic.
TLDR
The phylogeny of ticks and their closest known mite relatives using 18S rRNA sequences indicated that the suborder Holothyrida is more closely related to Ixodida than to Mesostigmata, the group used as outgroup in earlier molecular studies.
Discriminating between Ixodes ticks by means of mitochondrial DNA sequences.
TLDR
The DNA sequence of the mitochondrially encoded 16S rRNA gene of nine different Ixodes ticks and an outgroup from another genus, Dermacentor are reported to be useful for unravelling the systematics of these important vectors of human disease.

  • 1994
TLDR
The derived phylogeny failed to support a monophyletic relationship among members of Ornithodorinae and supported placement of Argasinae as basal to the Ixodidae, suggesting that hard ticks may have originated from an Argas-like ancestor, and supports earlier suggestions thathard ticks did not evolve until the late Cretaceous.

TLDR
ITS 2 appears useful for phylogenetic inference in the Rhipicephalinae because in genetic distance, maximum likelihood, and maximum parsimony analyses, most branches leading to species had >95% bootstrap support.
The value of idiosyncratic markers and changes to conserved tRNA sequences from the mitochondrial genome of hard ticks (Acari: Ixodida: Ixodidae) for phylogenetic inference.
TLDR
Two of the most interesting markers gave strong support to the hypothesis that species of the Prostriata (Ixodes spp.) are monophyletic, and changes to typically conserved nucleotides in tRNAs that are phylogenetically informative were common in this data set, and thus these types of markers might be found in other organisms.
A re-evaluation of relationships in the Metastriata (Acari: Parasitiformes: Ixodidae)
TLDR
The analysis provides weak support for a hypothesis in which the basal two to three lineages in the Metastriata are all composed of Aponomma species, and in which a fourth lineage within that genus, Ap onomma elaphense, clusters with Amblyomma quadricavum to form a more derived lineage.

TLDR
Abatement and control of ticks emphasizes a broad approach because of the differing types of habitats in which pest species may be found, and the use of repellents and acaricides as well as cultural and management practices are of primary importance.
Phylogenetic relationships among tick subfamilies (Ixodida: Ixodidae: Argasidae) based on the 18S nuclear rDNA gene.
TLDR
The 18S phylogeny supports the earlier 16S based phylogeny in placing members of Hyalomminae on a common branch with members of the Rhipicephalinae and in indicating long branch lengths among soft tick taxa.
18S rRNA gene sequences and phylogenetic relationships of European hard-tick species (Acari: Ixodidae)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses strongly support that Hyalomma species share a common ancestor with Rhipicephalinae and, consequently, Hyalomminae should no longer be considered an independent subfamily, and no definitive conclusion could be reached to support or oppose the separation of the subfamilies Haemaphysalinee and Amblyommineae.
