Rhipicephalus

(rī'pi-sef'ă-lŭs),
A genus of inornate hard ticks (family Ixodidae) consisting of about 50 species, all of which are Old World except Rhipicephalus sanguineus. Eyes and festoons are present in both sexes; short palpi and ventral plates are present only in the male. The genus includes important vectors of disease in humans and domestic animals.

Rhipicephalus

(rī″pĭ-sĕf′ă-lŭs) [Gr. rhipis, fan, + kephale, head]
A genus of ticks belonging to the family Ixodidae. Several species, esp. R. sanguineus, are vectors for the organisms of spotted fever, boutonneuse fever, and other rickettsial diseases.

Rhipicephalus

a genus of ticks in the family Ixodidae.

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.

CCHFV strains currently constitute 7 evolutionary lineages, 1 of which (Europe 2) contains the prototype strain AP92, which was isolated in 1975 from Rhipicephalus bursa ticks collected from goats in Greece (2).
The causative strain, Rhodopi-2008, clusters with other pathogenic Balkan CCHFV strains; however, it differs by > 20% at the nucleotide level from the CCHFV strain AP92, which was isolated from Rhipicephalus bursa ticks collected in 1975 from goats in Vergina village in northern Greece (7).
In this study, we obtained 148 questing adult ticks, representing the most abundant species in the area: 12 Dermacentor marginatus, 26 Rhipicephalus bursa, 41 Rh.
A total of 406 adult ticks were collected, representing 6 species: Rhipicephalus bursa, R.
A CCHFV strain, AP92, was isolated from Rhipicephalus bursa ticks collected in 1975 from goats in Vergina, a village in northern Greece (1).
ovis, which is transmitted primarily by Rhipicephalus bursa ticks, is an intraerythrocytic rickettsial pathogen of sheep, goats, and wild ruminants (1).
All 119 ticks of various species (Hyalomma marginatum, Dermacentor marginatus, Rhipicephalus bursa, Ixodes ricinus) collected from the area and tested by reverse transcription -nested PCR were negative for CCHFV.
