An isolated population of a reptile tick closely resembling Amblyomma limbatum is reported from a very small area of saltpan vegetation near Lochiel in South Australia. This population lies well outside the known range of A. limbatum, and most specimens are distinguished from this species by a small second ridge or spur on coxa II. The discovery of this pocket suggests that the distribution of reptile ticks in Australia may be more complex than previously assumed.
