Abstract

During 2008, small mammals were captured and examined for ticks at Chipori (Gangwon Province) and Nightmare (Gyeonggi Province) Ranges near the Demilitarized Zone, Republic of Korea (ROK). Ixodes nipponensis Kitaoka and Saito (75 nymphs, 835 larvae) was collected from Apodemus agrarius (Pallas), Micromys minutus (Pallas), and Crocidura lasiura Dobson, while Ixodes pomeranzevi Serdyukova (2 females, 4 nymphs) was collected only from A. agrarius. Separately, I. pomeranzevi (15 females, 5 nymphs, 24 larvae) was collected from Tamias sibiricus (Laxmann) near Bidulginang Falls (Gyeonggi Province). This is the first record of I. pomeranzevi from Apodemus agrarius in the ROK.
