Amblyomma dubitatum Neumann 1899 - (capybara tick)
The tick is found in parts of South America (mainly in northern Argentina to southern Brazil) and has capybara (Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris) as its main host. It shares the aquatic environment of that rodent. However, other rodents and marsupials can be also hosts of the larval and nymphal stages and the adults have been reported to bite occasionally humans, cattle and horses. The tick has one generation per year.
