Abstract

A new locality for the sand tampan (Omithodoros savignyi) in southern Africa is described. Sand tampans were found in the Nwambiya sandveld (22degrees31'S., 31 degrees 20'E.) in the northern sector of the Kruger National Park. Environmental conditions for the area is described. The possibility of an earlier linkage of the Nwambiya area with the arid western regions of southern Africa is raised in an attempt to explain this seemingly anomalous locality record.
