Scanning electron microscope (Model; SEM ISI-DS-130) was used to observe the fine surface structures of the predominant cattle tick Haemaphysalis longicornis Neumann 1901 (Acarina: Ixodidae) in Korea and some SEM microphotographs were presented in this pictorial monograph. Brief descriptions of the main contents are consisted of followings; L Mean body size is 2.43mm in unfed males and 2. 58mm in unfed females, the eyes are absent. 2.
