Ticks are vectors for a number of important human and animal pathogens. In this study, Corynebacterium lactis was isolated from Amblyomma testudinarium Koch tick sampled from wild boar in Malaysia. Imaging with transmission electron microscope and complete genome sequencing were performed for C. lactis which shared similar morphology to other Corynebacterium species and was susceptible to most of the commonly used antibiotics. The draft genome revealed a total length of 2,568,615 bp with G C content of 64.3%. This is the first description of C. lactis isolation from ticks, raising the possibility that ticks could be a vector for this emerging pathogen of companion animals.
