Haemaphysalis heinrichi Schulze, 1939 

This is an Oriental species found in moist broadleaf forests (Guglielmone et al. 2014). It was redescribed by Hoogstraal and Kohls (1968) from specimens collected in Myanmar and Vietnam on the Burmese ferret-badger ( Melogale personata  ). It has since been reported from Lao PDR and Thailand on additional hosts in the families Bovidae  , Canidae  , Herpestidae  , Muridae  , Sciuridae  , Soricidae  and Viverridae  ( Kolonin 2009; Guglielmone et al. 2104). It is possible that more than one species occurs under this name, as Hoogstraal and Kim (1985) indicate that it is polytypic.

The male and female are described in Hoogstraal and Kohls (1968).
