Fleas of the genus Foxella Wagner, commonly known as "gopher fleas," have various species of the mammal genus Thomomys Weid Neuweid in the Western United States as their hosts. Some workers maintain there are at least two species of fleas while others consider that all gopher fleas are of one species.
