During the summer of 1938 the author had the pleasure of accompanying Mr. Granville P. Ashcraft, Mammologist, Allan Hancock Foundation, on a short collecting trip into the central Sierra Nevada Mountains through Bishop Pass, Fresno County, California. From conies of this region, a flea apparently new to science was obtained which is here described and illustrated. It is named in honor of Mr. Ashcraft to whom the author is indebted for the specific identification of the type host involved.
