Ixodes eldaricus is a poorly known species, so far reported from parts of Russia, the Near East and Central Asia, with populations in Eastern Europe, detected on migratory hosts. It is a species which has probably been confused with I. frontalis, I. acuminatus and I. ricinus, with which it has morphological similarities.
