Structurally primitive haemaphysalids of Eurasia have been found only in temperate, northern areas. In spite of this contemporary distribution pattern, it has been postulated that the genus Haemaphysalis probably originated in tropical Southeast Asia, where numerous more structurally advanced haemaphysalid species now occur. We therefore consider it of outstanding phylogenetic and biological interest to report the discovery of two female specimens of a highly distinctive species, Haemaphysalis (Alloceraea) vietnamensis sp. n., possibly the most structurally primitive of all described species in this genus, from vegetation in the temperate or subtropical highlands of Vietnam.
