          Abstract

          Ixodes festai Rondelli, 1926 is a poorly known bird parasite tick. Its immature forms have not been described yet, while the adult forms only insufficiently, especially the male. In this note the presence of the male of Ixodes festai for the first time in Sardinia (Italy) is reported and a detailed redescription is provided. Morphometric data as well as photographs performed both with optical and electron microscope (ESEM FEI Quanta 200) are also shown.

          Translated abstract

          Ixodes festai Rondelli, 1926 est une espèce mal connue, parasite des oiseaux. Les stades immatures sont toujours actuellement non décrits, et les stades adultes eux-mêmes restent encore très partiellement décrits, notamment le mâle. Dans cet article, les auteurs décrivent le mâle de l’Ixodidae Ixodes festai signalé pour la première fois en Sardaigne (Italie), et une nouvelle description détaillée est fournie. En outre, des données morphométriques et des photographies prises par un microscope optique et par un microscope électronique ESEM FEI Quanta 200 complètent cet article.
