Dermacentor limbooliati Apanaskevich and Apanaskevich, 2015  

This recently described species has been found in peninsular Malaysia and Vietnam ( Apanaskevich and Apanaskevich 2015b). As with D. filippovae   and D. tamokensis   , collections in other continental Southeast Asian countries are likely to bridge the gap in its disjunct distribution. Most adults were collected from vegetation, with one sample from a wild pig (Sus scrofa) resting place. Adults probably use wild pigs as hosts; the immatures are unknown ( Apanaskevich and Apanaskevich 2015b). Apanaskevich and Apanaskevich (2015b) indicate that a female was collected from a human, without stating whether it was attached.

The male and female of D. limbooliati   are described in Apanaskevich and Apanaskevich (2015a).
