BELTRAN-SAAVEDRA, L. Fabián; LIMACHI, Juan Miguel  and  GUGLIELMONE, Alberto A.. Record of vicunas (Vicugna vicugna Molina 1782) as host of Amblyomma parvitarsum Neumann 1901 (Acari: Ixodidae) in Bolivia. J. Selva Andina Res. Soc. [online]. 2011, vol.2, n.2, pp.40-44. ISSN 2072-9294.

Adult stage Ixodidae mites were collected from wild vicuna (Vicugna vicugna Molina 1782), captured at three locations from the Área Natural de Manejo Integrado Nacional Apolobamba, in the Department of La Paz, Bolivia. The collected ticks corresponded to the species Amblyomma parvitarsum (Neumann 1901). This paper constitutes the second report of A. parvitarsum in Bolivia and the first confirmed report for vicuna as definitive hosts in the Andean region of this country.

Keywords : Ixodidae; Amblyomma parvitarsum; vicuña; Bolivia.
