Abstract

Total 24 valid species belongs to 6 subgenera in genus Ixodes had been documented in China. Of them, Eschatocephalus (2 species), Scaphixodes (2 species); Partipalpiger (1 species), Pholeoixodes (3 species) Ixodiopsis (1 species) and the largest subgenus Ixodes (15 species) were involved. Fortunately, we found another 3 new record species, namely I. (Ixodes) apronophorus Schulze, 1924, I. (Ixodes)pavlovskyi Pomerantzav, 1946 and I. (Trichotoixodes) frontalis (Panzer, 1798), from the specimens deposited in medical entomology gallery of China, which increase a new subgenus Trichotoixodes to the tick fauna in China. In the present paper, the taxonomy characteristics of the new record species were described briefly based on the specimens examined and keys to the genus Ixodes were also updated.

Keywords: Ixodes; China; Ixodes frontalis; Ixodes pavlovskyi; Ixodes apronophorus
