Abstract

A year ago the writer presented at these meetings a paper discussing the distribution of the tropical rat flea, Xenopsylla cheopis, in Iowa and other interior states. Now he will present evidence that two acarines generally associated with tropical fauna may have become more or less permanently established inside the state. They are Rhipicephalus sanguineus, the brown dog tick, and Liponyssus bacoti, the tropical mite.
