Ctenophthalmus pseudagyrtes (Siphonaptera: Ctenopthalmidae): New to the Flea Fauna of Texas
Two female ctenophthalmid fleas, Ctenophthalmus pseudagyrtes, were collected in June 2003 from an eastern mole Scalopus aquaticus from Marion County, Texas. This flea originally was described from S. aquaticus in Michigan; C. pseudagyrtes has been reported from various mammalian hosts collected primarily east of the Mississippi River. This is the first report from Texas. In addition, we provide the second record of the mite Haemogamasus harperi in Texas from the same host.
