Thirty-five specimens of at least five tick species-Amblyomma americanum, Dermacentor variabilis, Haemaphysalis leporispalustris, Ixodes cookei and Ixodes scapularis-were collected from eight mammal species in Rankin County, Mississippi, U.S.A. All are new county records. Three collections of D. variabilis from the eastern mole, Scalopus aquaticus, constitute the first report of tick collections anywhere in Mississippi from a mole.
