Haemaphysalis wellingtoni Nuttall and Warburton, 1908  

Haemaphysalis wellingtoni   is a widely distributed species, occurring in China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Nepal, New Guinea, and Sri Lanka, and for continental Southeast Asia in Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam ( Hoogstraal et al. 1972b; Teng and Jiang 1991; Geevarghese and Mishra 2011). It is a parasite of wild and domestic gallinaceous birds, although other ground-feeding birds and small mammals may be infested. A single female was recovered from a migratory Turdus cardis in Japan (Miyamoto et al. 1993). Immatures have been recorded from carnivores, artiodactyls, primates and shrews, as well as birds. Adult hosts are similar to those of immatures but include dogs. Bhat and Jacob (1977) provide a life cycle for an Indian population of this species which is summarized in Geevarghese and Mishra (2011).

The male is illustrated in Yamaguti et al. (1971). Trapido et al. (1964b) illustrate the larval capitulum and the nymphal capitulum, coxae and trochanters.
