Abstract

We report the molecular detection of several . Bartonella species in 44 (21.5%) of 204 fleas from Algeria collected from 26 rodents and 7 hedgehogs. . Bartonella elizabethae and . B. clarridgeiae were detected in the fleas collected on hedgehogs. . Bartonella tribocorum and . B. elizabethae were detected in fleas collected from rats and mice, and sequences similar to an unnamed . Bartonella sp. detected in rodents from China were detected in rats as well as a genotype of . Bartonella closely related to . Bartonella rochalimae detected in fleas collected on brown rats Rattus norvegicus).
