Cutaneous myiasis in small mammals
An unusually high incidence (31.8 percent) of Cuterebra infestation among 127 Peromyscus leucopus in Ontario, during 1958, was reported by Scalander (1961, J. mammal. 42: 57). A similar infestation (27.6 percent) among 214 white-footed mice in Massachusetts, during 1959, is reported by Abbot and Parsons (J. Mammal. In press). These authors remark on the paucity of literature on host species and on the uncertain taxonomic status of the parasites. their suggestion that all pertinent data be reported prompts this note.
