The aim of the present study is to describe morphological structures by light microscopy (LM) and molecular confirmation of Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) spp which were recovered from wild goat. Light microscopic study revealed both male and female ticks with hexagonal basis capituli, shorter mouthparts and posterior border without festoons and other similar Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) morphological features. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) selectively amplified a fragment length of about 400bp. It seems that this is the first report of Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) sp from wild goats in India.
