Abstract

Two species of the ixodid tick genus Dermacentor Koch, 1844 (Acari: Ixodidae) have previously been documented from Laos: D. auratus Supino, 1897 and D. steini (Schulze, 1933). Between 2012 and 2017, we recorded four additional Dermacentor species from this country: D. bellulus (Schulze, 1935); D. compactus Neumann, 1901; D. filippovae Apanaskevich & Apanaskevich, 2015; and D. tamokensisApanaskevich & Apanaskevich, 2016. In addition, seven specimens in the tick collection at the Institut Pasteur du Laos may represent new species and are currently under taxonomic investigation.
