The viruses transmitted by Phlebotomine sandflies in Europe (Toscana virus, Sicilian virus, sandfly fever Naples virus) are reviewed and their medical importance, geographical distribution, epidemiology and potential spreading discussed.
ITS 2 sequences heterogeneity in Phlebotomus sergenti and Phlebotomus similis (Diptera, Psychodidae): possible consequences in their ability to transmit Leishmania tropica.
Molecular systematics of the Phlebotomine sandflies of the subgenus Paraphlebotomus (Diptera, Psychodidae, Phlebotomus) based on ITS2 rDNA sequences. Hypotheses of dispersion and speciation
Three groupings are clearly highlighted: andrejevi and mongolensis;mireillae and saevus;jacusieli, kazeruni, sergenti and similis, related to speculations about the migration of Paraphlebotomus from a centre of dispersion located in the Middle East sometime from the early Eocene to the late Miocene.
Contribution to the knowledge of Culicoides (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) host preferences in France
Cattle DNA was found in at least 11 different species of Culicoides assayed, and direct sequencing and comparison of resultant sequences with sequences in GenBank, using BLAST, lead to the specific identification of the host in 100% of the cases.
The emergence of Schmallenberg virus across Culicoides communities and ecosystems in Europe.
Trichobilharzia spp. in natural conditions in Annecy Lake, France
All the snails emitting the ocellate furcocercariae belong to the same species identified as Radix peregra (=Radix ovata = Radix balthica).
Recent advances in phlebotomine sand fly research related to leishmaniasis control
Transmission modelling is required to identify the vectors that are a public health priority, the ones that must be controlled as part of the integrated control of leishmaniasis.
Presence of Trichobilharzia szidati in Lymnaea stagnalis and T. franki in Radix auricularia in northeastern France: molecular evidence
A molecular approach was used to analyse a focus of cercarial dermatitis in northeastern France (Lake Der-Chantecoq), including both cercariae and snails,by sequencing the internal transcribed…

A molecular phylogeny of species within the order Strongylida (bursate nematodes) using the D1 and D2 domains of 28S rDNA, with 23 new sequences for each domain is produced, with no unequivocal morphological synapomorphy found for the grouping Molineoidea + Heligmosomoidea, but none was found which contradicted it.
