Abstract

The genus Cephaluris is reorganized, based on specimens collected in Canada (Alberta and Yukon Territory), USA (Colorado), USSR (Kazakhstan), and Japan. Both North American pikas, Ochotona princeps and O. collaris, are hosts to C. coloradensis, and C. alaskensis. The latter species is a new host record for O. princeps. The North American species are redescribed, and differentiated on the basis of male morphology, the females being indistinguishable to the author.
