Abstract

A single female Amblyomma triguttatum triguttatum found on a sleepy lizard, Tiliqua rugosa, in the mid-north of South Australia constitutes a new host and locality record for this tick. As A. t. triguttatum is involved with the natural cycle of Coxiella burnetii in Australia, the new locality record may indicate the potential for spread of this disease.
