The collection of the immature stages of Dermacentor rhinocerinus from host animals is described for the first time. These are the bushveld gerbil ( Tatera leucogaster), from which larvae and nymphs were collected, the red veld rat ( Aethomys crysophilus), from which a larva was collected, and the Natal multimammate rat ( Mastomys natalensis), from which a nymph was collected. The rodents were examined in a nature reserve in which there are white rhinoceroses ( Ceratotherium simum).
