DISTRIBUTION IN THE SUDAN

AU Provinces, except Northern Province (King 1926). As noted below, however, Sudan Government collections contain specimens from Shendi, which is on the Nile in the southern part of Northern Province (16°42'N. latitude), but this tick is probably absent from most areas of Northern Province.

Collections containing specimens with the following data have been seen:

Bahr El Ghazal:, Wau (sheeg, goats, especially common on horses and donkeys; svs, HH). Fanjak (sheep and goats; HH). Yirol and GalualNyang Forest (horses; svš). Lake Nyubor (cattle; svs). The absence of the red tick on the many wild animals examined in this Province is noteworthy.

Upper Nile: Ako bo Post and Melut (mules; SGC). Bor (cattle; SCC). Maban (pigs and goats; svs). Malakal (donkeys, sheep and cattle; HH; cattle and donkeys; Balfour 1911F).

Blue Nile: Singa (native goat with surago disease; SCC).
Wad Madani (horses, donkeys, goats, sheep and cattle; HH, SGC).
Roseires (cattle; scc). Sennar (donkey; SGC).

Darfur: Fasher (goats; svs). Zalingei (goats and sheep; svs).
Kordof an: Talodi (miles and sheep; SCC).

Kassala: Abu Gamal (goats; SCC). Kassala (horses, goats, and cattle; svs).

Khartoum: Khartoum (goats from Meshra, SGC; goats, sheep, horses, asses, and donkeys; HH). (Introduced into Khartoum on cattle and donkeys from Malakal: Balfour 1911F).

Northern: Shendi (sheep; SCC).

DISTRIBUTION

R. evertsi evertsi is widely distributed throughout the Ethiopian Faunal Region (including the mountains of Yemen, south western Arabia; Hoogstraal, ms.). It is not found in very dry regions of Southwest Africa (Theiler and Robinson 1954) where it is replaced by the bandedlegged subspecies mimeticus. The two subspecies do occur together, however, in the savannah of northern Angola and range through the southwestern Congo to the Ubangi savannah near the Sudan border. The typical form is ren duced in numbers or is absent in large areas of the Somalilands and in northern Nyasaland, but in these places it is not replaced by the bandedlegged variety. It also appears to be absent in areas of West Africa.
