Larvae of Amblyomma parvitarsum Neumann, 1901 were collected on a lizard, Liolaemus jamesi (Boulanger, 1891), captured on March 1, 2003 in the vicinity of Surire Salar (18°50′ S 69°06′ W, altitude 4250 m) within Surire National Park, which is located in the Andean Altiplano in the First Administrative Region of Chile. This is the first confirmed record of A. parvitarsum larvae on a lizard. The habitat where the infested lizard was found is shared with South American camelids, the hosts for adults of this tick species.
