Abstract

A new host record is reported for the ixodid tick Bothriocroton hydrosauri from near Burra in South Australia. The tick was recovered from an adult male of the scincid lizard Tiliqua adelaidensis, the pygmy bluetongue lizard. The low prevalence (1 record in >300 lizards examined) suggests this small lizard is not usually infested.
