Article summary

More than 7500 bird fleas from Belgium have been identified from the author's personal collection and from the collections of the Royal Institute of Natural Sciences in Brussels and of the Gembloux Faculty of Agronomy. Two genera were found (Ceratophyllus, 9 species and Dasypsyllus, 1 species). It seems that some are rare, other much more common. However sampling was not random and the collecting effort was rather variable. The data set has been organised by taxonomic order of the hosts (birds) and it includes all essential information: date, locality and geographical coordinates, number of fleas and the name of the collector. The species Ceratophyllus gallinae and Dasypsyllus gallinulae have beenmapped. The phenology suggests that these are mainly springtime species.
