Amblyomma parvitarsum Neumann, 1901 is a hard tick that in adult stages parasitizes domestic and wild South American camelids. Immature stages of this tick have been reported on lizards of Liolaemidae in Argentina and Chile. Herein, we report for the first time larval and nymphal stages of A. parvitarsum parasitizing wild lizards of the genus Liolaemus in Peru.
