See also kappa 2482, and cf. Eustathius’ note, Commentary on the Odyssey 2.147.23-30, on Homer’s κυνοραιστής ('dog-gouger': Odyssey 17.300) as a tick; perhaps the brown dog tick (rhiphicephalus sanguineus) rather than the deer tick (Ixodes).
According to LSJ, φθείρ (phi 483, but in a different sense) is a 'louse', but the word is used here generically of a parasite.
