  1. aDate that adult female was submitted to CFTRL in Mission, TX.
  2. bDeer = white-tailed deer.
  3. cThe number of females from which eggs were pooled to produce the larval progeny used in Bm86 sequencing.
  4. dRhipicephalus maintained in colony at CFTRL after the initial outbreak are designated "colony" along with the generation of larvae from which Bm86 was sequenced. Larvae obtained from field collected adult female Rhipicephalus are listed as F1 "outbreaks".
