Amblyomma tholloni Neumann, 1899  

This species is commonly found on elephants ( Loxodonta africana   ). In Gabon, it has previously been found in Libreville and Tchibanga (1930, CBpt). We collected A. tholloni   in LopØ from tree branches and by the sledge method. In Sebe, we also collected a male of this species from Atherurus africanus   .
