Distribution. Neotropics ( Brazil, Dominican Republic, Panama, Puerto Rico) ( Ouvrard 2020), USA (FL) (Halbert 2004).

Host plants. Inga Mill.   spp.

Comments. The first find of Euceropsylla russoi   in Florida was on Inga   sp. in Miami in February 2004 by DPI inspector Haydee Escobar (FSCA# E2004-950). This species is found more commonly in Florida than E . martorelli   . So far, collections are restricted to Miami-Dade, Collier, and Palm Beach counties.
