Mackenzie L. Kwak
Little is known about the enigmatic tree kangaroo tick (Ixodes dendrolagi Wilson, 1967). Since its description, no new taxonomic data describing it have been published. An updated description of the morphologically variable female I. dendrolagi is presented based on two specimens taken from the type host at the type locality. Scanning electron micrographs are presented with comments on morphological variation in I. dendrolagi. The conservation of the species is also discussed.
