M: Marx (1897) in Neumann  (1897), under the name Dermacentor venustus  , suppressed to preserve the name Dermacentor andersoni  , as explained in Keirans (1976)

F: Marx (1897) in Neumann  (1897), under the name Dermacentor venustus 

N: Hooker et al. (1912), under the name Dermacentor venustus 

L: Stiles (1910)

Note: Dermacentor andersoni  has been misidentified on several occasions and at localities around the world (Guglielmone et al. 2014, 2015, Guzmán-Cornejo et al. 2016). See Dermacentor occidentalis  for a discussion of the difficulties involved in separating the nymph and larva of that species from the corresponding stages of Dermacentor andersoni  . 3. Dermacentor asper Arthur, 1960a  . A Palearctic species known only to parasitize Erinaceomorpha  : Erinaceidae  .

M: Arthur (1960a)

N: unknown

L: unknown

Redescriptions: none

Note: Teng and Jiang (1991) and Kolonin (2009) treat Dermacentor asper  as a synonym of Dermacentor sinicus Schulze, 1931  , but it is regarded as provisionally valid in Guglielmone et al. (2014, 2015).
