Abstract : Results of a comparative developmental study of this tick species in different areas of the territory are discussed. It is assumed that the parthenogenetic method of reproduction is quite widely distributed. The bisexual method of reproduction has a limited distribution, occurring only in the extreme southern part of the area, where it apparently can alternate or coexist with the parthenogenetic.
