Type locality. Russia, Astrakhan’, Volgograd and Rostov regions (all situated in south of European Russia ).  

Syntypes. ZIN (the holotype was not designated).

Type host. Spermophilus pygmaeus (Pallas, 1778)   , the little ground squirrel (little souslik).

Principal hosts. Ground squirrels (sousliks) of different species ( Nikulina, 2004). Occasionally, it may be found on other species of rodents such as the water vole and hamsters ( Nikulina, 2004). Mitchell (1977) reported Hg. citelli   in Nepal parasitising the house mouse (the Himalayan subspecies) and the Himalayan rat, Rattus eha (Wroughton, 1849)   .

Distribution. Southern parts of European and Asiatic Russia; Central Asia ( Nepal), Far East ( Mitchell, 1977; Goncharova et al., 1991; Nikulina, 2004). Several records of this species in the southern part of Western Siberia, in Tuva and Buryatia outline its known distribution in the Asiatic Russia ( Nikulina, 2004).

Remarks. Mašán & Fend’a (2010: 91) proposed a new synonymy between Hg. citelli   and Hg. kitanoi Asanuma, 1948   . However, the authors did not provide any arguments in favour of their opinion.
