Dermacentor compactus   Neumann, 1901

Dermacentor compactus   occurs commonly and predominantly on wild pigs. Occasional hosts include humans, dogs, porcupine, tiger, pangolin, python and buffalo ( Wassef and Hoogstraal 1983; Hoogstraal and Wassef 1984). The immatures are found on a wide variety of small and medium-sized mammals ( Canidae   , Muridae   , Sciuridae   ), but chiefly squirrels ( Apanaskevich 2016). There is also one record from a python (Hoogstraal and Wassef 1984). Most records of D. compactus   biting humans in Mariana et al. (2008b) are due to numerous nymphs, a few larvae and adult ticks. The diagnosis of nymphs and larvae requires confirmation because the larva and nymph of D. compactus   were only described in 2016. Dermacentor compactus   occurs in peninsular Malaysia and in Lao PDR, Thailand and Vietnam (Hoogstraal and Wassef 1984; Kolonin 1992; Apanaskevich 2016; Vongphayloth et al. 2018b).

For a description of the male and female, see Wassef and Hoogstraal (1983), and for the nymph and larva, Apanaskevich (2016).
