Haemophysalis longicornis tick, female

An engorged female Haemophysalis longicornis tick (also called the Bush tick in Australia). This is not the Australian paralysis tick (Ixodes holocyclus), but is shown for comparison with Ixodes holocyclus. Unlike Ixodes holocyclus, all pairs of legs of Haemaphysalis longicornis are of the same shade, the legs are finer, the mouthparts are much shorter, and the shield is rounded.
