Hyalomma a. asiaticum is confirmed to be a distinct species which occurs in many parts of Iran except near the Caspian Sea. The main hosts of adults are sheep; cattle, horses, goats, and camels are also infested. Adults were collected in each season but their activity was found to be in spring, especially in May. This is strictly a three-host tick and a vector of Theileria annulata.
