(1998) and Barker and Murrell (2008) consider Argas / Carios fischeri Audouin, 1826 a valid name, while Guglielmone et al. (2009) follow Hoogstraal (1958) and Filippova (1964) in considering this name a provisional synonym of A. vespertilionis .

25. Ornithodoros coniceps (Canestrini, 1890) ( Alectorobius , Carios )

43. Ornithodoros fonsecai ( Labruna and Venzal, 2009) (n. syn.) ( Alectorobius , Carios ). This species was recently described by Labruna and Venzal (2009), who placed it in the genus Carios .

57. Ornithodoros kohlsi Guglielmone and Keirans, 2002 ( Alectorobius , Carios ). Originally named O. boliviensis Kohls and Clifford, 1964 , which is preoccupied (Guglielmone et al. 2009).

75. Ornithodoros papillipes (Birula, 1895) ( Alectorobius ). This species is considered a synonym of O. tholozani by many Western scientists ( Hoogstraal, 1985), but East European workers strongly defend the validity of this name with arguments that are scientifically sound ( Filippova, 1966). The uncertain status of these taxa has led us to treat them both as provisionally valid.

92. Ornithodoros savignyi ( Audouin, 1826) . This is the type species of the genus Ornithodoros ; it was originally named Argas savignyi .
