status

 

Amblyomma gervaisi (Lucas, 1847)  

Amblyomma gervaisi   is found predominantly in broadleaf forests, as well as in desert and xeric shrublands. It has been recorded from Thailand and Vietnam ( Kolonin 2009). It is a parasite of snakes and lizards, with occasional records from birds and mammals. This species can reach high prevalences on captive snakes ( Catherine et al. 2017a), causing pathological changes to the host’s skin ( Catherine et al. 2017b).

The male and female are described and illustrated in Kaufman (1972, as Aponomma gervaisi   ). The nymph is described in Neumann   (1899). The larva is undescribed.
