Four species of Ambylomma ticks and a Placobdella leech were found in association with the turtle genus Callopsis. New host records are listed. Differences berween attachment sites of the various tick life stages exist, and the ecological significance of these are discussed. Rhinoclemmys Callopsis consists of six species which range from Sonora, Mexico, to northern Brazil, and they can be divided into rwo groups according to their ecological preferences: a terrestrial group including C. annulata (Gray), C. areolata (Dumeril and Bibron), C. pulcherrima (Gray), and C. rubida (Cope), and an aquatic group consisting of C. funerea (Cope) and C. punctularia (Daudin)
