Opisodasys (Sciuropsylla) robustus mexicanus Dampf, 1942, is synonymized with the nominate taxon, and Opisodasys (Oxypsylla) keeni nesiotus Augustson, 1941, is elevated to full species status. Keys and brief redescriptions of the subgenera and species are included. Distributions and host preferences for the species are discussed.
