Abstract : A total of 4042 host and ectoparasite collections were made. The status of identifications varies with the various groups of ectoparasites. Determinations are complete for the fleas and ticks. The bulk of the mite collections remains to be studied. Determinations for all avian and domestic animal hosts are complete. Wild mammal hosts are now under study. It is hoped that additional host and parasite collections can be made in the mountains of Mustang District during April and May of this year.
