Fifty-two species of fleas were collected from 37 species of mammals, from nests and burrows west of the Rio Grande in and near the Jemez Mts., New Mexico, from November 1969 to August 1971. Data are presented on relative abundance, geographic distribution, seasonal occurrence, host and nest preference, sex ratio, and plague infection. Three species were found naturally infected with plague: Epitedia stanfordi Traub for the first time in New Mexico, Anomiopsyllus princei Barnes for the first… 
Fleas (Siphonaptera) in nests of boles ( Microtus spp.) in montane habitats of three regions of Utah
TLDR
Nest surveys can generally supplement rather than replace trapped-host surveys in population studies and are also a source of larvae for morphology and taxonomy research.
Fleas (Siphonaptera: Ceratophyllidae, Ctenophthalmidae) from rodents in five southwestern states
—Nine species of fleas were collected incidental to a survey of rodents for molecular studies in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah, south of latitude 38°N. Three species were parasites
On the Nearctic Flea Genus Opisodasys Jordan, 1933: Its Taxonomy, Distribution, and Host Preferences (Siphonaptera: Ceratophyllidae)
TLDR
Oxypsylla keeni nesiotus Augustson, 1941, is elevated to full species status and Distributions and host preferences for the species are discussed.
THE NORTH AMERICAN FLEAS OF THE GENUS MEGABOTHRIS JORDAN, 1933 (SIPHONAPTERA: CERATOPHYLLIDAE)
Abstract The nine named North American species of the flea genus Megabothris Jordan, 1933 (Siphonaptera: Ceratophyllidae), are discussed with respect to their distribution and host preferences. Four
A review of flea collection records from Onychomys leucogaster with observations on the role of grasshopper mice in the epizoology of wild rodent plaque
TLDR
The importance of the association of fleas with a hospitable secondary host in the maintenance and transmission of wild rodent plague is discussed.
Malaraeus Jordan, 1933: A North American Genus Of Fleas (Siphonaptera: Ceratophyllidae)
TLDR
The extant species of fleas in the North American ceratophylline genus Malaraeus Jordan, 1933, are reviewed and redescribed and the diagnostic characters of the three taxa are illustrated.
Large Flea Larvae of Hystrichopsylla dippiei1 Reveal Breeding in Red Squirrel2 Nest with Adult H. occidentalis sylvaticus1 Confirming Sympatry in New Mexico
TLDR
Nine nests of red squirrels and two nests of Mexican woodrats, Neotoma mexicana Baird, the latter with visits by deer mice, Peromyscus maniculatus (Wagner) or P. gratus Merriam recorded, had one to four species of adult fleas including one of a woodrat.
DYNAMICS OF PLAGUE IN A GUNNISON'S PRAIRIE DOG COLONY COMPLEX FROM NEW MEXICO
TLDR
Serum antibody titers indicate that more than 40% of the few prairie dogs left to establish colonies following epizootics survived plague infection, and elevated serum titers against Y. pestis were identified only in Gunnison's prairies.
THE SQUIRREL FLEA TARSOPSYLLA OCTODECIMDENTATA (KOLENATI, 1863): DISTRIBUTION AND HOST PREFERENCES (SIPHONAPTERA: CERATOPHYLLIDAE)
ABSTRACT The distribution and host associations of the ceratophyllid flea, Tarsopsylla octodecimdentata (Kolenati, 1863), are discussed. Tarsopsylla o. coloradensis (Baker, 1895) is synonymized with
Shrew Flea, Corrodopsylla curvata1, in Nest and Range Extension in New Mexico with Review of Relevant Records in Six Western States
TLDR
The shrew flea, Corrodopsylla curvata curvata (Rothschild, 1915) (Siphonaptera: Ctenophthalmidae), is not common in collections of fleas from the Southwest or Rocky Mountains, and larger samples would confirm the absence of a zone of intergradation between two allopatric species.
