Abstract
A single fully engorged nymphal tick of the genus Amblyomma was collected from the nostril ofa field researcher returning from Kibale National Park, Uganda. While unfed ticks have previouslybeen removed from human nostrils, this is the first time that a specimen so situated was permitted to feed to repletion and detach naturally.
