Abstract

The male and female of Haemaphysalis (H.) darjeeling sp. n. are described from collections from the serow, Capricornis sumatraensis thar Hodgson; wild boar, Sus scrofa cristatus Wagner; and barking deer, Muntiacus muntjak vaginalis (Boddaert), in western Himalayan forests of Darjeeling District, West Bengal, India. Single specimens, not designated as paratypes, have been seen from a barking deer in Assam, from a human in the Chiengmai area of Thailand, and from Burma. This species is related to H. (H.) birmaniae Supino of Burma, Nepal, and Himalayan areas of India, H. (H.) atherurus Hoogstraal, Trapido, and Kohls of Malaya and Thailand, and H. (H.) capricornis Hoogstraal of Thailand.
