Distribution

World: Circumpolar, widely distributed throughout the northern and southern hemispheres in high latitudes, including the Arctic and the sub-Antarctic.

New Zealand: Snares, Antipodes, Auckland, Campbell and Macquarie Islands, Taiaroa Head (Otago Peninsula) and possibly Stewart Island, are localities that represent breeding populations of the tick, whereas records from Dargaville, Whangarei, Peka Peka, Waikanae, Lower Hutt, Palliser Bay, Wellington, near Haast, and Southland are from birds that are likely to be outside their breeding range.

Note: Information for this species has not yet been entered into the Cane (2011) website.

Some records of I. uriae  from Stictocarbo punctatus punctatus ( Dumbleton 1961)  may actually refer to Ixodes jacksoni  (A.C.G. Heath and S. Hardwick unpublished data).
