  author={M. W. Hastriter and C. Dick},
An alcohol collection of 990 fl eas from Madagascar (2003-2005) was deposited in the Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago, and recently made available for study. Among the material were two new and undescribed taxa. Th e male and female sex of Paractenopsyllus madagascarensis sp. n. is described and host associations are discussed. In addition, a description of the heretofore unknown female of Paractenopsyllus raxworthyi Duchemin & Ratovonjato, 2004 is provided. Th e tenrec Microgale… Expand

Two new species of polystomes (Monogenea: Polystomatidae) from the anuran host Guibemantis liber.
The description of two cryptic species from a single host species points to a taxonomic complex situation in G. liber, a widespread frog that is characterized by the presence of several deep conspecific lineages and possibly by hybridization and admixture with other species of Guibemantis. Expand
The Fleas of Endemic and Introduced Small Mammals in Central Highland Forests of Madagascar: Faunistics, Species Diversity, and Absence of Host Specificity
For flea species represented by sufficient samples, no parasite—host specificity was found, and there is evidence for considerable lateral exchange in the local flea fauna between species of tenrecs and the two rodent families (endemic and introduced). Expand

Two new fleas (Siphonaptera: Ceratophyllidae: Leptopsyllinae) of Madagascar: Tsaractenus rodhaini n. sp. and Paractenopsyllus (Consobrinopsyllus n. subgen.) goodmani n. sp.
To help resolve certain systematic issues involving Malagasy Leptopsyllinae, the new subgenus Consobrinopsyllus of Paractenopsylluses is introduced for P. goodmani, a previously unknown female of the genus Tsaractenus that could constitute an intermediate step between the two endemicMalagasy leptopsyLLine genera.
