New data are given on the tick fauna of The Faroe Islands. So far, three species of Ixodes are recorded from the islands. I. uriae from Fratercula arctica, Uria algae and Rattus norvegicus I. caledonicus from Fulmarus glacialis; and I. ricinus from Homo sapiens, Felis calus, Canis familiaris, Phylloscopus collybita and Oenanthe oenanthe. The possible regular presence of I. ricinus on the archipelago is likely to increase the risk for transmission of tick-borne zoonotic pathogens. including Borrelia garinii, to humans.
