Ixodes ricinus (L.) (Acari, Ixodida) parasitic on lizards (Reptilia, Lacertidae)
Summary.

From among 30 specimens of Lacerta agilis that were analysed in the present study, 17 were affected by Ixodes ricinus (56.7%) and 18 lizards L. vivipara of which 15 specimens were infested with the I. ricinus (83.3%) ticks. From among 142 specimens of I. ricinus found on the bodies of lizards, 70 specimens (49.30%) were in their larval stage, and 72 specimens (50.70%) were in the nymph stage. Adult specimens were lacking. More lizards infested with the I. ricinus ticks were observed on the research plots of the natural character (77.3%) than on anthropogenically altered areas (57.7%). The most frequent area to which ticks attached were front axils, where larvae and nymphs formed groups of a few specimens sticking closely together.
