Walters, L­ 3041; 12 DN, NC, Swain Co., Indian Gap, 3 Jun. 2001, E. B. Pivorun, L­ 2975; 19 DN, TN, Sevier Co., Brushy Mount, 9 Apr. 2002, K. Walters, L­ 2993; 3 DN, TN, Sevier Co., Chimney Tops Trail, 13 May 2002, K. Walters, L­ 2995.

Ex Peromyscus leucopus  (white­footed mouse): 1 DN, TN, Sevier Co., Twin Creeks, 11 Mar. 2002, K. Walters, L­ 2987.

Ex Peromyscus maniculatus  (deer mouse): 1 DN, NC, Haywood Co., Purchase Knob, 20 Nov. 2001, K. Walters, L­ 2998; 1 DN, NC, Haywood Co., Purchase Knob, 20 Nov. 2002, K. Walters, L­ 3037.

Ex Rattus norvegicus  ( Norway rat): 1 DN, TN, Sevier Co., Elkmont, 27 Dec. 2003, K. Langdon.

Ex Sorex cinereus  (masked shrew): 1 DN, NC, Swain Co., Clingman’s Dome, 16 Nov. 2002, K. Walters, L­ 3033; 1 DN, NC, Swain Co., Noland Divide Trail, 16 Nov. 2002, K. Walters, L­ 3042.

Deutonymphs of G. hypudaei  have been collected from the hair and fur of rodents throughout the Nearctic region (Fain & Whitaker 1973, Whitaker & Wilson 1974). The records from Sorex  are unusual and might represent contaminants if rodent traps were not washed prior to resetting. Glycyphagus  sp.

Ex Ochrotomys nuttalli  (golden mouse): TN, Sevier Co., near Cosby, 1964­1966 (Linzey 1968; Linzey & Linzey 1968).

Phoretic hypopi of Glycyphagus  were reported as Labidophorus  by Linzey (1968) and Linzey & Linzey (1968). The family Labidophoridae was synonomized with Glycyphagidae  . Marsupialichus brasiliensis Fain 

Ex Didelphis virginiana  (Virginia opossum): 2 DN (hypopus), TN, Cocke Co., Cosby, 10 Jan. 2003, W. K. Reeves, L­ 3049.

Marsupialichus brasiliensis  is host specific to Didelphis  spp. and in North America they infest D. virginiana  (Fain & Whitaker 1973, Whitaker & Wilson 1974)

Orycteroxenus canadensis Fain, Kok, Lukoschus  , & Clulow

Ex Mus musculus  (house mouse): 1 DN, TN, Blount Co., 6 Jul. 1937.

Orycteroxenus canadensis  is primarily an ectoparasite of the star­nosed mole and this record could indicate some cross contamination or is a rare association. The mite was removed from the hair of a museum specimen collected in the 1930 s. The history of this animal is not known. Orycteroxenus soricis (Oudemans) 

Ex Microtus chrotorrhinus  (rock vole): 1 DN, TN, Sevier Co., Clingman’s Dome, 16 Nov. 2002, K. Walters, L­ 3039.

Ex Sorex cinereus  (masked shrew): 1 DN, NC, Swain Co., Noland Divide Trail, 16 Nov. 2002, K. Walters, L­ 3042.

Orycteroxenus soricis  has been reported to infest insectivores and some voles (Fain & Whitaker 1973, Whitaker & Wilson 1974).
