The various groups of organisms associated with bats have caught the interest of many investigators. Noteworthy is the review by Stiles and Nolan (1931) in which all known parasites of bats were listed. Allen (1939) presented a general introduction to the parasites of bats in which he emphasized the arthropods. Other references to parasites of bats are concerned with particular groups. In this paper I hope to acquaint the reader with these groups and to indicate some of the interesting relationships that have been elucidated. The tremendous number of papers published concerning organisms associated with bats precludes the inclusion of many of them in an article of this nature. However, the references included have excellent citations which may be consulted for additional detailed information.
