a genus of ticks found on humans and other animals in Africa, Asia, and Europe; they may transmit disease and cause serious injury by their bite.

Hyalomma

(hī'ă-lom'ă),
An Old World genus (about 21 species) of large ixodid ticks with submarginal eyes, coalesced festoons, an ornate scutum, and a long rostrum. Adults parasitize all domestic animals and a wide variety of wild animals; larvae or nymphs may parasitize small mammals, birds, and reptiles. Species harbor a great variety of pathogens of humans and animals, and also cause considerable mechanical injury.

Hyalomma

a genus of ticks in the family Ixodidae. The several stages of these ticks transmit Babesia caballi, B. equi, Theileria parva, T. annulata, T. dispar, Coxiella burnetii, Rickettsia bovis and R. conori. There are significant differences of opinion about the nomenclature of these ticks. A further subdivision creating new genera of Hyalommina and Hyalommosta is proposed. The currently listed species are: Hyalomma anatolicum, H. detritum mauretanicum, H. detritum scupense (H. uralense, H. volgense), H. dromedarii, H. excavatum (H. anatolicum), H. impressum, H. plumbeum plumbeum (H. marginatum), H. truncatum (H. transiens). See also sweating sickness.
