Abstract : A ready reference to the known species of Mallophaga found on mammals of North America (North of Mexico) is presented. This classification for the Mallophaga is in accordance with Werneck (1948 and 1950)--'Os Malophagos de Mamiferos.''. A different generic classification is contained in Hopkins and Clay (1952)--'A check-list of the genera and species of Mallophaga'.' Classification for the mammals is from Miller and Kellogg (1955)--'List of North American Recent Mammals.' Published records of Mallophaga from mammal s ..are few in number, even for domestic mammals. Hosts which are expected to have Mallophaga, but for which no records are known, are: arctic fox, swift fox, brown bear, grizzly bear, polar bear, fisher, otter, sea otter, jaguar, moose, caribou, pronghorn and musk ox.
