Excerpt
The fleas collected in 1946 and 1947 during the investigation of outbreaks of wild-rodent plague in the districts of Trujillo and Huancabamba (Peru) were sent to the British Museum (Natural History), London, by Dr A. Mac~hiavello,C~o nsulting Epidemiologist, Pan American Sanitary Bureau, Lima, Peru, and were identified at the Zoological Museum, Tring, Hertfordshire, England (formerly the property of the late Baron Rothschild), where the flea collection of the late Hon. Nathaniel Charles Rothschild is housed and continued. The number of specimens submitted for identitication is considerable ; all of them have been compared with each other, and, where necessary, with the types in the Rothschild collection. Inclusive of a small collection from Loja, Ecuador, which has a fauna similar to that of the Department of Piura of which the province of Huancabamba forms a part, 20 species were obtained. Four of these species are new to science and are described in this report ; several others are new for Peru, among them both sexes of Ctenidiosomus spillmamii, a flea of great interest for the students of Suctoria and of which only one female from Ecuador has hitherto been obtained. Where there are large numbers of a species, many specimens will be kept available at Tring for future students, and others will be distributed to suctoriologists in various countries ; for instance, the series of Tiamastus cavicola (a species confined to the Andesian countries), of which about 1,900 examples were sent, will give parasitologists an opportunity to dissect this flea and study a long-nosed spermatheca.`
