Abstract

A total of 18 larvae of Ornithodoros mimon Kohls, Clifford & Jones, 1969 were found on vespertilionid bats deposited in the Annexes of the Colección Mamíferos Lillo, National University of Tucumán, Argentina, or captured alive and released. Thirteen larvae were collected on Argentinean bats: Eptesicus diminutus Osgood (Salta Province), Eptesicus furinalis (d´Orbigny) (Jujuy Province) and Histioutus macrotus (Poeppig) (Tucumán Province); the remaining specimens were obtained from E. furinalis in Uruguay (Departaments of Artigas and Montevideo). These first Argentinean records expand the known range of O. mimon, as do the records from Uruguay. Eptesicus diminutus and H. macrotus are new hosts for O. mimom, which appears to be a common bat tick in the southern Neotropics, with a range that probably includes Brazil.
