status

 

129. Ixodes loricatus   Neumann, 1899.

A Neotropical species (see note below) whose adults are usually found on Didelphimorphia   : Didelphidae   ; common hosts for larvae and nymphs are Didelphidae   and Rodentia   : Cricetidae   . All parasitic stages have been found on Rodentia   : Cricetidae   and Muridae   ; adults alone have been recovered from Carnivora   : Procyonidae   , Cingulata   : Dasypodidae   , and Rodentia   : Caviidae   and Cuniculidae   ( Cooley & Kohls 1945, Guglielmone et al. 2014, Nava et al. 2017). There are no bona fide records of Ixodes loricatus   causing human parasitism.

Note: Ixodes loricatus   is an eastern South American species, and records outside this region are due to misidentifications or mislabeling, as explained in Guglielmone et al. (2011); therefore, inclusion of Ixodes loricatus   in the identification keys for Panamanian ( Fairchild et al. 1966) or Mexican ( Guzmán-Cornejo & Robbins 2010) ticks is unjustified, and its presence in Colombia, as asserted by Acevedo-Gutiérrez et al. (2020) is not accepted here.
