Haemaphysalis howletti Warburton, 1913


Haemaphysalis howletti Warburton, 1913  

This is predominantly a South Asian species, ranging from Pakistan and India to Nepal, with a single record from Vietnam (Gheevargese and Mishra 2011; Kolonin 1995). Adults are found on a variety of mostly small to mediumsized mammals, with the type specimen coming from a hill pony ( Warburton 1913; Gheevargese and Mishra 2011). Immatures share the same mammal hosts but also parasitize birds ( Dhanda 1964; Gheevargese and Mishra 2011).

All life history stages are described in Dhanda (1964).
