Dermacentor bellulus ( Schulze, 1935) 

This species, originally described by Schulze (1935), has been variously synonymized ( D. atrosignatus Sugimoto 1937  , D. auratus Teng and Jiang 1991  , and D. taiwanensis Camicas et al. 1998  ) ( Apanaskevich and Apanaskevich 2015c). All life history stages were redescribed by Apanaskevich and Apanaskevich (2015c). Unlike many of the newly described species, a good deal of host and locality data are available for this species ( Apanaskevich and Apanaskevich 2015c). Dermacentor bellulus  is known from China, Japan and Nepal, as well as from Lao PDR and Vietnam in continental Southeast Asia ( Apanaskevich and Apanaskevich 2015c; Vongphayloth et al. 2018b). Most collections of adults come from wild pigs (Sus scrofa), while immatures have been recovered from small to medium-sized mammals of the families Canidae  , Leporidae  , Muridae  , Mustelidae  and Tupaiidae  , as well as from a partridge ( Apanaskevich and Apanaskevich 2015c). All life history stages have been collected during most months of the year.

Descriptions of all life history stages are available in Apanaskevich and Apanaskevich (2015c).
