Abstract
Since Rhipicephalus carnivoralis Walker, 1965, is closely related morphologically to Rhipicephalus appendiculatus Neumann, 1901, it was felt that it would be interesting to discover whether the new species might be capable of transmitting Theileria parva (Theiler, 1904), the causal parasite of East Coast Fever of cattle. Miss J. B. Walker kindly provided about 200 nymphs of R. carnivoralis-from her paratype Batch no. B.S. 913- that had been fed as larvae on a rabbit, and they were used as follows.
