Abstract

Two species of Haemaphysalis occurring in the western United States were studied with respect to geographical distribution, seasonal occurrence, host-parasite association and external anatomy and morphology. H. leporispalustris is widely distributed in the west. Abundant records for some states are lacking and should be provided to extend the knowledge of this tick's distribution.
