oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Notes on some South African Fleas (Siphonaptera)

Volume 27, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



During a revision of the slide-collection of Siphonaptera at the South African Institute for Medical Research, special attention was directed to some questions not entirely solved by De Meillon, Davis and Hardy (1961) whose book is actually based on the specimens of this collection. The great difficulties these problems present rendered it impossible to attain completely satisfactory solutions. In some cases, however, it was thought worthwhile to give a more detailed account of the material and it is hoped that some remarks on this aspect will prove useful to other workers.
