The presence of Rhipicephalus muhsamae north of the Sahara.


The occurrence of male and female Rhipicephalus muhsamae feeding on dogs and a horse in Upper Egypt is described. The morphological identification was verified using partial 16S rRNA gene sequences. By applying respective real-time PCRs, no evidence neither for Coxiella burnetii nor for spotted-fever rickettsia infections were found in the ticks.
