Comparative material.

U.S.A.: 1 ♀ ( BMNH) - 12. 4. 1955, Co. Utah, Camelback Mt., Dugway, Tooele, host: Peromyscus maniculatus  , AH124:005, det. H. Hurlbutt (labelled Kleemannia plumosus  ); 1 ♀ ( BMNH) - 12. 5. 1955, Co. Utah, Stansbury Mts., Dugway, Tooele, host: Dipodomys ordii  , AH154:008, det. H. Hurlbutt (labelled Kleemannia plumosus  ).

Remarks.

I have seen two females of this species from the British Museum Collection in London, both collected from small mammals in Utah in 1955, and additionaly identified by H. Hurlbutt as Kleemannia plumosa  . These specimens are most probably a part at least of the material forming the record by Allred and Beck (1966) of Kleemania  (sic) sp., who added also some fragmentary illustrations to this unidentified species. The original description given by Elsen and Whitaker (1985) requires a small amendments: vertex simple, not produced into bifid spur supporting j1 as stated in the original generic diagnosis; setae j1 smooth, relatively short and thick, wedge-shaped, with ventral position on vertex; epistome with bifurcate central process and spinate lateral margins; tarsi of legs I–IV with empodium but no claws).
