SERGIO E. BERMÚDEZ C., DANIEL GONZÁLEZ D., GLEYDIS GARCÍA S.

Abstract


Data are presented for 103 tick specimens collected from four coyotes in two provinces of Panama.  Six tick species were recovered: Amblyomma cajennense s.l., Amblyomma oblongoguttatum, Amblyomma ovale, Amblyomma sp. near parvum, Haemaphysalis juxtakochi, and Ornithodoros sp. near puertoricensis. These collections constitute a preliminary checklist of ticks from the southern coyote population.
