cxmlrncnmos MEGNINI (Duges) (now Otobius me nini). Balfour (1906) stata: "Es. Broun .... reco§r_1Ized EKE spInose nymph of the

ear tick, Ornithodorus Meggini from the Sudan".

[graphic]

There is little doubt that this was an erroneous identification. 0. me 'ni, listed for the Sudan (King 1911), was considered an error King (l%6). Nevertheless, the possibility that this species nny be introduced into the Sudan should be considered. A tick infesting the ears of cattle, it has been introduced into South Africa (Bedford 1925,1932B) from America. It has also established itself in Nyasaland (Wilson 1950B), Northern Rhodesia (Morris 1933), Southern Rlmdesia (Jack 1912), southern Belgian Congo (Schoenaers 1950, 19511), and 011 Madagascar (after 191.813, Hoogstraal 19532).

mauzowm HEBRAEUM Koch, 181.1,. Listed for the Sudan (King 1911) E5 later deleted (King 1926).

This species does not occur in the Suian. B4(NH) files contain records of A. hebraeum from the Sudan (H. H. King

le it, 1911), but c3n~ specimens cannot be located {H the collection. A specimn tube in the same institution

contains material of both A. varie atum a.nd _A. hebraeum and a label (in Hirst's handwriting) Iientifying them as such.

Another almst illegible label in the vial reads "Taufilcia,
Sudan, 1909, H. H. King". There is a remote chance that the
A. hebraeum specimens were removed from imported cattle but
it Is more likely that these are South African specimens

that were somehow mixed with Sudan specimens. Museum records

show that the specimens were presented by members of the
Committee for Entomological Research.

A note by Nuttall in his collection logbook states that the 5. variegatum-hebraeum er King (1911) is 5. lepidum.

APONIMMA LAEVE Neuhehn, 1899. listed from the Sudan by King (1911 E 1&6}. This is a non.African species name (Theiler 19543).

The species in the Sudan is actually 5. latum (Koch, 181.1,).

BOOPHIIIIS AUSTRALIS (Fuller, 1899). Listed from the Sudan by Bel.four (BITE) and King (1911). This name, a synonym of 13. micro lus (Canestrini, 1888), which is not known from the SEan, probably refers to misidentified material of _§. decoloratus. It is less likely that it refers to §. annulatus.

HAEMAPHYSALIS CAICABATA Neumann, l9C2, was reported from Roseires, Blue Nile Province, by Neumann (l9l0A). From his description and figure it is evident that this material represents H. he 1 Nuttall and ivlarburton, 1915 (Hoogstraal 19550). ‘Ring

) did not list H. calcarata in his reports on Sudan ticks,

and, although he collecta specimens of _1_i. hogi, they had
been identified as 11. leachii.

HAEMAPHYSLLIS ERINACEI Pavesi, 1881., which was reported from the ~m ‘F"'Iege raa 195413) was later (19550) deleted. This re.

cord was due to an early erroneous identification.

HYAILMMA AEGYPTIUM (Linnaeus, 1758). All Sudan H lomm. ticks pre. viously Eve been lumped under this name by Eng (l9ll,l926), 0'Fa.rrell (l9l3A,B), and others. This species does not occur in the Sudan.

R.Hl?ICEPH.L‘LUS BURSA Ganestrini and Fanzago, 1877. The report by negr (l9Z§,, from 8700 feet elevation in the Imatong Mountains of Equatoria Province, is based on material (kindly loaned by Dr. J. Bequaert) that Dr. Theiler and I have found to be 5. k-Qchie
