Rhipicephalus appendiculatus
a three-host tick found on most animal species. Called also brown ear tick. Transmits Theileria parva, Babesia spp. and other protozoan and viral diseases including Nairobi sheep disease and louping ill. It is the principal vector of East Coast fever.
Rhipicephalus ayrei
transmits Theileria parva.
Rhipicephalus bursa
transmits Babesia, Theileria, Anaplasma, Rickettsia, Anaplasma, Coxiella spp.
Rhipicephalus capensis
a three-host tick, parasitic on cattle; transmits East Coast fever.
Rhipicephalus evertsi
a two-host tick; transmits Theileria, Babesia, Borrelia, Rickettsia spp. Called also red-legged tick.
Rhipicephalus jeanelli
transmits Theileria parva.
Rhipicephalus neavei
transmits Theileria parva.
Rhipicephalus pulchellus
transmits Nairobi sheep disease virus and Theileria parva.
Rhipicephalus sanguineus
a three-host tick, mainly a parasite of dogs but occurs on all species of mammals and birds. It transmits Babesia, Borrelia, Coxiella, Rickettsia, Anaplasma and Pasteurella spp. Also causes tick paralysis.
Rhipicephalus simus
a three-host tick that transmits Theileria parva.
