Along with colleagues and students I collected fleas from mammals during the period 1998-2007 in five Upper Peninsula counties, and three northern Lower Peninsula counties. Also included here are a few fleas from Grand Traverse County which were mistakenly omitted from earlier publications. Identified specimens were compared to existing distribution records for both parasite and host. Only new documented distributions for the county or the state of Michigan are listed. One parasite record is new for Michigan. In addition, 15 new county host/parasite combinations are recorded from the Upper Peninsula, and 8 new county host/parasite combinations are recorded from the northern Lower Peninsula.
