Blood-fed, female Culicoides were collected and their meals were excised from the abdomens for molecular analysis. A total of forty-one blood-fed females of eight species were collected, including Culicoides biguttatus (Coquillett), C. furens (Poey), C. guttipennis (Coquillett), C. haematopotus Malloch, C. pallidicornis Kieffer, C. scanloni Wirth and Hubert, C. spinosus Root and Hoffman, and C. stellifer (Coquillett). Positive blood-meal identifications included white-tailed deer Odocoileus virginianus (Zimmerman) from C. biguttatus and C. furens, wild boar Sus scrofa L. from C. biguttatus and C. spinosus, and white-throated sparrow Zonotrichia albicolis (Gmelin) from C. haematopotus.
