Hyalomma

An old world genus (about 21 species) of large ixodid ticks with submarginal eyes, coalesced festoons, an ornate scutum, and a long rostrum. Adults parasitise all domestic animals and a wide variety of wild animals; larvae or nymphs may parasitise small mammals, birds, and reptiles. Species harbor a great variety of pathogens of humans and animals, and also cause considerable mechanical injury.
