Abstract : Haemaphysalis pavlovskyi ticks were first found by Pospelova-Shtrom (Material of Tadzhik Expedition 1932) in southern Tadzhikistan in the vicinity of Sarai-Kamara and Kizil-Su in the tugai, on pheasants (Phasianus colchicus bianchii But.) and on a hare (Lepus totai bokchariensis Ogn.); males and nymphs were collected from the pheasants and 2 nymphs were found on the hare. Pospelova-Shtrom (1935) established this tick species to be new to science and first described the male; in 1939, she gave a description of nymphs.
