Abstract
The isolation of a parasite referred to as "Theileria lawrencei (Kenya)" by the collection of engorged nymphae of Rhipicephalus appendiculatus from a wild African buffalo is described. The parasite was serially transmitted by ticks through four buffalo calves: one of them died and the others reacted and recovered. The wild buffalo was apparently a healthy carrier of the infection, but the recovered experimental buffaloes did not remain infectious to ticks. The infections in three of the buffaloes were transmissable to cattle.
