Ixodes simplex   Neumann, 1906

Ixodes simplex   is a bat tick with a very wide distribution. It has been reported from Africa, Europe, China, Japan, Taiwan, Australia, the Pacific Islands and New Guinea (Arthur 1965; Roberts 1970; Wilson 1970; Hoogstraal et al. 1972b). Records from continental Southeast Asia are relatively uncommon but it has been recorded from peninsular Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam ( Hoogstraal et al. 1972b; Petney and Keirans 1994; Kolonin 2003). Its hosts are predominantly microchiropteran bats, especially the genus Miniopterus   which is the most commonly recorded genus, and in particular M. schreibersii   , as well as members of the genera Myotis   and Rhinolophus   . Ixodes simplex   has been recorded from sea level to 2,000 m, where it is found in bat caves ( Kolonin 2009).

The female and nymph are illustrated in Yamaguti et al. (1971).
