During 1978, 1979, and 1981 ectoparasites of bats were collected in 16 counties of the Upper and Lower peninsulas in connection with an extensive study of Michigan bat populations (Kurta 1980, 1982). The two insect and five acarine species recovered include four new records for Michigan and two new host records for the United States. All are listed with comments on past records of Michigan bat ectoparasites.
