From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
||This Rat flea topic, formerly a disambiguation page, is believed to qualify as a Set index article (SIA) which should provide at least a brief description of the general thing, and which indexes all the notable examples that have Wikipedia articles. Like a disambiguation page, this should help readers seeking a specific example to find their way to it. Note this disambiguating function can be enhanced by details, images, and clarifying references not allowed in disambiguation pages. Unlike a disambiguation page, an SIA can be the target of links from other articles. Some inbound links may need to be revised to point to more specific articles intended. The inbound links that mean to refer to the general thing, may link indirectly via Rat flea (SIA), which should be a redirect to here. Differentiating these facilitates the review and correction of unintended links. When this SIA was created by conversion of a disambiguation page, unrelated titles from the disambiguation page, if any, should have been moved to Rat flea (disambiguation). Expansion of the text of this SIA, including with references, would be welcomed.||
There are two species:
- Oriental rat flea (Xenopsylla cheopis), also known as the tropical rat flea, the primary vector for bubonic plague
- Northern rat flea (Nosopsyllus fasciatus), a minor vector.
