Rhipicephilus sanguineus (Latreille 1806) the brown dog tick, is one of the most widely distributed ixodid ticks in the world, however, there was no report for the discovery of the species in Korea. Specimens unfed or partly fed were collected from the dogs rearing in the livestock farms and the pastures near the farms located in Kyunggi-Do, Chungchong-Namdo, Cholla-Pukdo and Cheju-Do, in summer seasons during 1981 to 1984. The specimens were examined at the Institute of Veterinary Research in Anyang and were identified as R. sanguineus. The morphological characteristics observed by means of the scanning electron microscope were presented with some SEM microphotographs. As. R. sanguineus is firstly discovered to occur in Korea, a total of 20 species of ticks belonging to E: genera, such as, Argas, Amblyomma, Boophilus, Dermacentor, Haemaphysalis, Hyalomma, Ixodes and Rhipicephilus, has now been recorded.
