Cediopsylla simplex ( Baker)  —rabbit flea

Ex Sylvilagus floridanus  (eastern cottontail): 3 F, GSMNP, 30 Mar. 1931, R. L. Boke (Fox 1940); 4 F, TN, Sevier Co., Greenbrier, 1 Apr. 1931, R. L. Boke (Fox 1940); 1 F, TN, Blount Co., 20 Nov. 1947, D. W. Pfitzer (Pfitzer 1950, Benton 1980, Durden & Kollars 1997).

As indicated by its vernacular name, the rabbit flea mainly parasitizes lagomorphs (Durden & Kollars 1997). This flea also forms short­term associations with predators of lagomorphs, such as foxes and dogs (Durden et al. 2005).
