28. Dermacentor parumapertus  Neumann, 1901.

A Nearctic species whose adults are usually found on Lagomorpha  : Leporidae  ; larvae and nymphs are also commonly recovered from Leporidae  as well as Rodentia  : Cricetidae 

and Heteromyidae  . All parasitic stages have been found on Lagomorpha  : Leporidae  , and Rodentia  : Heteromyidae  and Sciuridae  ; adults alone have been collected from Artiodactyla  : Bovidae  and Cervidae  , Carnivora  : Canidae  , and Accipitriformes  : Accipitridae  . Dermacentor parumapertus  is a rare parasite of humans.

Note: Camicas et al. (1998) list Dermacentor parumapertus  as a Nearctic and Neotropical species, but Guglielmone et al. (2003) and Guzmán-Cornejo et al. (2016) doubt its presence in the Neotropical Region. Moraru et al. (2018) found morphological differences between populations of Dermacentor parumapertus  from Texas in relation to specimens from other parts of the USA, but they expressed uncertainty as to whether these signal the presence of different species, and Portugal et al. (2019) found insufficient evidence to support the theory that more than one species exists under the name Dermacentor parumapertus  .
