Stomoxys calcitrans failed to transmit Trichophyton equinum from infected to uninfected susceptible ponies and from infected to uninfected guinea pigs. Flies that had fed on lesions caused by this strain of T. equinum could not be demonstrated to carry the fungus. T. equinum was shown to be viable in the skin lesions by cultural methods and tissues of the lesions were shown to be infectious for guinea pigs.
