Abstract

Haemaphysalis megalaimae sp.n. is described from males, females, nymphs, and a larva collected from small green barbets (Megalaima viridis Boddaert) taken in Shimoga District, Mysore State, India. The species appears to be host-specific on the small green barbet. It is closely related to the Haemaphysalis hoodi-doenitzi-centropi group of bird parasitizing haemaphysalids but differs in several distinct morphological features.
