Abstract

A total of 135 hard ticks consisting of 2 species of 2 genera, 117 Haemaphysalis flava and 18 Ixodes tanuki, were collected from a Korean raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides koreensis) caught at the Moaksan (Mt.). Chollabuk-do, Korea in March 1995. It is the first record that I. tanuki appears in the Korean fauna.
