    Abstract

    Ticks and blood smears were collected from a reintroduced population of threatened tammar wallabies (Notamacropus eugenii eugenii). Ixodes hirsti was common during Autumn/Winter, and Amblyomma spp. in spring/summer, reflecting the seasonal density of questing A. triguttatum triguttatum. Red blood cell parasites were not detected in the 90 smears analysed.
