Amblyomma tigrinum Koch, 1844a
status

 

124. Amblyomma tigrinum Koch, 1844a   .

A Neotropical species whose adults are usually found on Carnivora   : Canidae   ; larvae and nymphs are commonly recovered from Rodentia   : Caviidae   . Adults and immature stages have also been recovered from Canidae   and Caviidae   , as well as from Carnivora   : Felidae   , and Rodentia   : Cricetidae   ; adult ticks alone have been found on Artiodactyla   (several families), and Perissodactyla   : Equidae   ; nymphs and larvae have been recovered from Aves  (several orders), and larvae alone have been found on Rodentia   : Muridae   . Amblyomma tigrinum   is a sporadic parasite of humans.

Note: see Amblyomma maculatum   for a discussion of the confusion that exists between adults of that species and those of Amblyomma tigrinum   and Amblyomma triste   . Identifying the immature stages is even more problematic; larvae are almost impossible to separate using morphological characters, as discussed in Estrada-Peña et al. (2005). Acevedo-Gutiérrez et al. (2020) supported the presence of Amblyomma tigrinum   in Colombia based on a reference that provides no morphological or molecular diagnosis; therefore, that country is provisionally excluded from the range of this tick.
