Abstract

Forty-two specimens of three tick species — Dermacentor albipictus, D. variabilis, and Ixodes cookei — were collected from a single road-killed male American mink, Neovison vison, in Leake County, Mississippi, U.S.A. The D. albipictus and I. cookei collections are new county records. This is the first report of tick collections anywhere in Mississippi from a mink.
