Tick - Dermacentor andersoni

Tick - Dermacentor andersoni
John Day, Grant County, Oregon, USA
June 25, 2011
Size: 6mm
This is the closest I can get with my 100mm lens.
I will mail the specimen to you If you want to see it with one of your dissection scopes:
The spiracular plate is visible. The first two specimens posted are live. The 4th is an enlargement because of good resolution.
If you want the specimen send me an email with your address and how you want it sent: pnwma1@frontier.com
The tick is presently in alcohol.
Thanks, Jake.
