by Dias, J.A.T.S.
Publisher: 1986Other Title: On the taxonomic position of African species of Amblyomma of the variegatum group T. Dias (Acarina - Ixodoidea).Subject(s): TAXONOMIA | ACARINA | GARRAPATAS | AMBLYOMMA VARIEGATUM | AMBLYOMMA POMPOSUM | AMBLYOMMA SUPERBUM | ZAIRE | ANGOLA | AFRICA | TAXONOMY | ACARINA | TICKS | AMBLYOMMA VARIEGATUM | ZAIRE | ANGOLA | AFRICA | TAXONOMIE | ACARINA | TIQUE | AMBLYOMMA VARIEGATUM | ZAIRE | ANGOLA | AFRIQUE In: García de Orta. Zoología (Portugal) v. 13(1-2) p. 89-96Summary: After having examined a paper of Eastwood (1971), in which he considers the {plusmn}variegatum group{BB} (Ixodidae - Amblyomma) as being only composed by two species (A. variegatum and A. pomposum), contesting therefore the validity of A. superbum, the author proceeds to a critic analysis of the taxonomic problem so created, concluding by the non-legitimacy of the arguments expended by that scientist, reiterating so the criteria all ready postulated by him (1953 and 1969), that the referred group is really constituted by three well distinguished taxa, as follows: a) A. variegatum (Fabricius, 1974) -of all Afrotropical Region and Antilles; b) A. pomposum Dönitz, 1909- of the East Africa; c) A. superbum Travassos Dias, 1953 -from part of Angola and Zaire
