Assortative mating between Boophilus decoloratus and Boophilus microplus (Acari: Ixodidae)



Assortative mating between Boophilus decoloratus and Boophilus microplus (Acari: Ixodidae)



Journal of Medical Entomology 23(4): 459-460



Observation of mixed infestations of Boophilus decoloratus and B. microplus on zebu cattle showed that assortative mating occurs. The result was a smaller number of hybrid matings than expected from random mating.
