A flea taken from a Whiskered bat. Can anyone tell me if there is a key for any of the bat parasites or where I might find more info.?
No identification made yet.
No interactions present.
Not sure of an online key, there is this book.
Just run bat flea through map mate and it came up with 8 possibles(may be more?).
6 Ischnopsyllus spp and 2 Nycteridopsylla spp.
