Ceratophyllus gallinae (Schrank) — chicken flea

Ex Peromyscus maniculatus (deer mouse) nest: 1 M, 2 F, NC, Haywood Co., Purchase Creek, 23 Jul. 2002, W. K. Reeves, L­ 3002 (Nelder et al. 2005).

Although the chicken flea has been introduced from Europe to various parts of the world along with its domesticated host, in North America, it is primarily found in the northern United States and the above record represents a significant range extension ( Benton 1980, Nelder et al. 2005).
