The conservation status of all 33 New Zealand flea taxa was assessed using the New Zealand Threat Classification System (NZTCS), with all fleas assigned the same threat status as their least-threatened host species. Three species are ranked as Data Deficient, 1 Threatened (Nationally Vulnerable), 9 At Risk, 9 Not Threatened and 11 Introduced and Naturalised. A full list is presented, along with a statistical summary and brief notes. This is the first time the threat status of any flea found in New Zealand has been assessed.
