(1998) and Barker and Murrell (2008) consider Argas  / Carios fischeri  Audouin, 1826 a valid name, while Guglielmone et al.

75. Ornithodoros papillipes (Birula, 1895)  ( Alectorobius  ). This species is considered a synonym of O. tholozani  by many Western scientists ( Hoogstraal, 1985), but East European workers strongly defend the validity of this name with arguments that are scientifically sound ( Filippova, 1966). The uncertain status of these taxa has led us to treat them both as provisionally valid.

Ornithodoros verrucosus Olenev, Zasukhin and Fenyuk, 1934  ( Alectorobius  ) is considered a synonym of O. asperus  by Western workers ( Hoogstraal, 1985), but Russian scientists present sound evidence for its validity ( Filippova, 1966). We tentatively accept both taxa, pending further studies.

109. Ornithodoros viguerasi Cooley and Kohls, 1941  ( Alectorobius  , Carios  )

110. Ornithodoros yumatensis Cooley and Kohls, 1941  ( Alectorobius  , Carios  )
