KURCHATOV & POPOVA (1939). USSR. Ecology. Also noted that hatching larvae quickly disperse, loss of ability (of which stage not stated) to feed after lengthy starvation, preference for dogs rather than cattle (in comparison with R. bursa) or mice or rabbits (in comparison with R. rossicus

End R. turanicus).


DAUBNEY (1944). Kenya. Stresses need for study of rickettsiae in this species of tick.

PERVGTAISKY (1950B). USSR. Male R. s uineus can fertilize female R. bursa, which lay a.Iarge nu5er of mostly fertile

eggs afterwards. Mating between male R. bursa and female
R. 'neus does not result in fertile eggs. The progeny

of male saniuineus - female busa union were only females

identical to E. bursa. These hybrid females, when fertilized by male R. sansuineus, gave rise to 27 gynandromorphs and

323 females see also Pervomaisky 1954). This paper also
reports Hyalomma gynandromorphs.

PERVGiAISKY (1954). USSR. Study of variation in size ad morphological characters; some reared material resembles

mate reddily and prdduce fertile offspring.
