Abstract: The immature stages of Neotropical ticks are poorly known and in many cases have not been described. This work presents a morphological description of Amblyomma brasiliense larvae (F1) and a redescription of nymphs (F1). A. brasiliense is reported as one of the most aggressive ticks to humans in Brazil. Immature ticks obtained from a laboratory colony initiated from adult specimens collected in the Parque Estadual Intervales (24° 18' S and 48° 24' W), São Paulo, Brazil, were analyzed under scanning electron mi… Show more

“…The large wax arrangement of A. oblongoguttatum is in accordance with Clifford and Anastos (1960) for the genus Amblyomma, and confirmed for A. cajennense (Famadas et al 1997;Barbieri et al 2007), Amblyomma glauerti Keirans, King and Sharrad, Amblyomma variegatum (Fabricius), Amblyomma americanum (Linnaeus) (Klompen et al 1996), A. parvum, A. rotundatum (Barbieri et al 2007, A. pacae (Barbieri et al 2008b), and Amblyomma brasiliense (Sanches et al 2009). However, the larvae of Amblyomma tuberculatum Marx, Amblyomma geomydae (Cantor), Amblyomma babirussae Schulze (Klompen et al 1996), Amblyomma aureolatum (Pallas) (Arzua, 2002), A. longirostre Barbieri et al 2007) and A. ovale (Barbieri et al 2008a) possess one additional ventral pair on the 4 th festoon (segment XII); moreover, the larva of A. geomydae has an additional pair on segment V; A. barbirussae has two additional pairs on segment V and one pair on X, and A. longirostre has an additional dorsal pair (WdV 1 ) on segment V.…”

“…2, 10), as in A. rotundatum (Amorim & Serra Freire 1995), A. varium (Amorim & Serra Freire 1996), A. ovale (Barbieri et al 2008a), and A. pacae (Barbieri et al 2008b). In contrast, six setae were found in group dII of the tarsus of A. parvum and A. pseudoparvum (Guglielmone et al 1990) and A. dubitatum (Amorim & Serra Freire 1999a), whereas seven setae were reported for A. cajennense, A. longirostre, and A. brasiliense (Famadas et al 1997;Barros-Battesti et al 2005;Sanches et al 2009).…”
