Ixodes tanuki Saito, 1964  

This species has a broad distribution in East Asia, extending from continental Southeast Asia westward to Nepal, where it has been found between ca. 2,500 and 3,700 m above sea level ( Clifford et al. 1975). In Southeast Asia it has been reported from Doi Inthanon in northern Thailand ( Kitaoka and Suzuki 1983). In this area hosts of female ticks are the yellow-throated martin ( Martes flavigula   , which is also a host in Nepal), and larvae have been found on two rodents ( Eothenomys melanogaster   and Rattus   sp.). Some biological information is available, chiefly from Japan ( Fujimoto and Yamaguti 1990; Kawabuchi et al. 2005; Yamauchi et al. 2013).

The male and female of I. tanuki   are illustrated in Yamaguti et al. (1971) and Clifford et al. (1975).
