Haemaphysalis traguli Oudemans, 1928  

Adult and immature Ha. traguli   parasitize mouse-deer ( Tragulus   spp.), although there is also a single record of two females from a rodent, Maxomys rajah ( Kohls 1957)   . This species is found in forest areas of Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam ( Hoogstraal et al. 1972b; Kolonin 1995).

The male, female, nymph and larva are illustrated in Hoogstraal (1964).
