Ticks (Ixodidae) were collected from northern quolls (Dasyurus hallucatus) from three sites on the Atherton Tableland, north Queensland. Four species of ticks (Haemaphysalis humerosa, Ixodes fecialis, I. holocyclus and I. tasmani) were collected from quolls. Prevalence of infestation of ticks varied from 44 to 92% across the three sites. The collection of the three species of Ixodes represents new host records for D. hallucatus, thus adding valuable new details to the ecology of the parasite fauna of an endangered marsupial.
