Dermacentor laothaiensis n. sp. (Acari: Ixodidae) is described based on adults ex wild boar and vegetation from Laos and Thailand. Adults of D. laothaiensis n. sp. are similar to those of D. bellulus (Schulze, 1935) and D. steini (Schulze, 1933) but can be distinguished by the conscutum shape, colour pattern of the conscutum and scutum, the density of punctations on the pseudoscutum and scutum and the shape of female genital structures.
