Reproductive Aspects of Haemaphysalis leporis-palustris. Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz [online]. 1997, vol.92, n.3, pp. 373-376. ISSN 0074-0276.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0074-02761997000300013.

The adult stage of Haemaphysalis leporis-palustris was studied. Two infestations consisted of male and female ticks on two rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus). Other two infestations consisted of only female ticks on two O. cuniculus. Females fed without males showed differences in some biological parameters when compared to females fed with males. Parthenogenesis is reported for the first time by one H. leporis-palustris female

Keywords : Haemaphysalis leporis-palustris; Ixodidae; biology; parthenogenesis.
