Amblyomma javanense (Supino, 1897)  

This species, which is found over much of the Oriental Region, including Cambodia, peninsular Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam ( Hoogstraal et al. 1968a; Keirans 1985; Petney and Keirans 1996b), is relatively host specific for pangolins (Hoogstraal and Aeschlimann 1982), although it has also been rarely recorded from other mammals and reptiles. It occurs in those habitats occupied by its dominant host species. Hassan et al. (2013) reported high prevalences (mean 68.8%) and intensities (mean 42.6) of parasitism by A. javanense   in a sample of 15 Manis javanica   (Sunda pangolin) from peninsular Malaysia.

The male, female, nymph and larva are described in Voltzit and Keirans (2002). Voltzit & Keirans (2002) describe the nymph as having dentition 2/2 but the corresponding figure (14c) shows dentition 3/3.
