Flea (Siphonaptera) - Ctenocephalides felis

Flea (Siphonaptera) - Ctenocephalides felis
San Leandro, California, USA
August 11, 2004
Here's a flea that someone was asking for in the Forum. I think it's Ctenocephalides felis, a cat flea. Found on my dog & killed before photographing (not usually how I photograph bugs ... fleas are an exception).

Very nice!
Joyce, this is a great image, one we could use for our Kaufman Focus guide.

Cool!
We don't get to add new orders here very often :).
