Abstract

Abstract An abbreviation system for genus names of ticks of the world is proposed. This abbreviation system adopts two letters (typically, the first two), as previously proposed for Culicidae and more recently for Phlebotominae. I hope this abbreviation system will be useful for anyone interested in tick taxonomy and related areas.
