Redescriptions

M: Robinson (1926), Sharif (1928), Voltzit and Keirans (2002)

F: Robinson (1926), Sharif (1928), Yamaguti et al. (1971), Voltzit and Keirans (2002)

N: Rageau and Vervent (1959), under the name Amblyomma laticaudae   , but see note below

L: Rageau (1960), under the name Amblyomma laticaudae, Voltzit and Keirans (2002)   ; see note below

Note: Rageau and Vervent (1959) published as a new species Amblyomma laticaudae   , a name preoccupied by Amblyomma laticaudae   as described by Warburton (1933), based on three nymphs and a larva collected from a sea snake, but they did not describe the larva. Later, Rageau (1960) described the larva and recognized Amblyomma laticaudae Rageau and Vervent   as a synonym of Amblyomma laticaudae Warburton. However   , both names Amblyomma laticaudae Warburton   and Amblyomma laticaudae Rageau and Vervent   are synonyms of Amblyomma nitidum   , as first recognized by Audy et al. (1960). The name Amblyomma laticaudae Rageau and Vervent   was overlooked in the study of Guglielmone and Nava (2014).
