This photograph depicts a close view of the leathery integument that covers members of the Argasidae family of North American soft ticks, in this case, a member of the genus, Antricola, which possess a tuberculated, or knobby, roughened surface. On the other hand, Ixodidae, hard ticks, are covered by a tough scutum.
