Siphonaptera, rabbit flea #2 - Cediopsylla simplex

Siphonaptera, rabbit flea #2 - Cediopsylla simplex
100 Acre Wood, Winneshiek County, Iowa, USA
June 12, 2016
Size: 2+ mm
Dogs got a rabbit so I looked close, caught what I thought were 3 fleas which turned out to be 2 fleas and a fly.
Each flea has a different look to the ends of their abdomen but perhaps it is just the manner in which they died (in the freezer).
