An adult male of Amblyomma parvum Aragão, 1908 was collected from a biologist performing field work in Key Largo, Monroe County, Florida, USA, on 30 November 2004. Intermittent surveys from 2004–2009, including examination of wildlife and tick drags, failed to detect additional specimens of A. parvum in Key Largo. This is the first collection of a free-living A. parvum in the United States, although it has been found there once before on a quarantined animal entering from Paraguay.
