Ixodes rasus Neumann, 1899  

Ixodes rasus   is one of the tick species most frequently found on a large variety of hosts. In Gabon, it was first collected on Manis sp.   in Libreville (Fiasson, 1943) on Civettictis civetta   , and on Potamochoerus porcus   in Tchibanga (1930, CBpt). We commonly found this species in all regions; on Atherurus africanus   (adult and nymph specimens) in Massaha, Guietsou, Lalara, Mouloudou and Weliga; on Atilax paludinosus   (nymphs) in Trouwaya, on Cephalophus dorsalis   , C. nigrifrons   , P. monticola   (larvae, nymphs and adults) in Ekata, Guietsou, Hendje, Hevegab, Latta, La scierie, Massaha, Mbomo, Nkolabona, Nze Vatican, Oyem, Zambakangaka, Zolende and Zomoko; on Manis tricuspis   (adults and nymphs) in Guietsou, Ilendo, Massaha, Lemenga, Oyem, Weliga; on Potamochoerus porcus   (adults) in Guietsou; on Nandinia binotata   (adults, nymphs) in Abong Awoum and Malolo and finally on Kinixys erosa   (adult) in Nkolabona.
