The high observed prevalence of intestinal parasitoses indicates active parasite transmission in San Cayetano as a result of poor environmental hygiene-ascribable largely to a lack of public water supply, sewerage, and waste removal services.
Natural infection of cortelezzii complex (Diptera: Psychodidae: Phlebotominae) with Leishmania braziliensis in Chaco, Argentina.
Identification of the natural breeding sites of sandflies (Diptera: Psychodidae: Phlebotominae), potential vectors of leishmaniasis, in the province of Chaco, Argentina.
Expanding the search efforts and characterising these sites will enable the development of specific study designs to gain insight into the spatial distribution of the risks posed by these vectors, and serve as a basis for proposing and evaluating vector control measures.

Changes in sandfly population diversity and density in the Chaco region are an indicator of emergent epidemic risk in sentinel capture sites and support the hypothesis of two distinct patterns.
Phlebotomine sand flies (Diptera: Psychodidae) of the province of Chaco, Argentina.
Mycropygomyia peresi (Mangabeira) is reported for the first time in Argentina, extending the known dstribution of Migonemyia migonei (França), Evandromyia sallesi (Galvão & Coutinho), MycropyGomyia quinquefer (Dyar), Brumptomyia brumpti (Larousse) y Nemapalpus spp to the province of Chaco.

Environmental factors such as degree of anthropic modification and climatic factors were found to modulate both the phlebotomine fauna composition and the diversity and abundance of each species, which would increase vector abundances, and thus the transmission risk, during warm months with moderate rainfall.

The morphological characters of the new phlebotomine sand fly permit its inclusion in the Cortelezzii series of genus Evandromyia, subgenus Barrettomyia (Diptera: Psychodidae) and it is proposed to be separated in two species complexes.
Argentinian phlebotomine fauna, new records of Phlebotominae (Diptera: Psychodidae) for the country and the province of Chaco.
Five new records of species in the province of Chaco, obtained from different projects carried out between 2001 and 2015, four of which are also new records for Argentina, are described and their importance as potential vectors and the correct determination of the sympatric species is discussed.

The persistence of this phlebotomine in the northern border of the province, its association with a case of cutaneous leishmaniasis, and the new record in the outskirts of the city of Córdoba strengthens the need for regular vector surveillance and a case detection-sensitive health system in vulnerable regions, even in temperate climates.
