This large (~4mm) soft-bodied tick was observed on several occasions in Karkur Talh and Karkur Murr (Jebel Uweinat). All the observations have been at or near shelters with abundant dust and waddan (Ammotragus lervia) droppings, after the tick crawled on (and on several instances bit) visiting humans.
