Results of a survey of fleas on small rodents of southern Israel conducted from 1992 to 1998 are presented. From 18 localities, 14 rodent species were sampled, yielding 14 species of fleas. Nosopsyllus iranus theodori is reported from Gerbillus gerbillus, Gerbillus henleyi, and Mus musculus in Israel for the first time. Additional records of Coptopsylla africana in Israel substantiate the presence of this species in Israel. Other distributional records and host preferences are reported and discussed.
