    Dear john 3:10:

    A spiracle is an air hole, such as a whale has in the top of its head. Other species possess this mechanism as well.

    One reference explains that:

    The spiracle of Ixodes ricinus (L.) (Ixodidae: Metastigmata: Acarina): a passive diffusion barrier for water vapour.

    I hope this is helpful.
