Phlebotominae, a group of insects with great medical importance especially in Brazil, are responsible for transmitting causal agents of cutaneous and visceral leishmaniasis. In Brazil, the most important species of Leishmania Ross, 1903 are L. (Viannia) braziliensis Vianna, 1911, whose main vectors are Nyssomyia intermedia Lutz & Neiva, 1912, Ny. neivai Pin-to, 1926, Ny. whitmani Antunes & Coutinho, 1939 and Migonemyia migonei França, 1920; and L. (Leishmania) amazon-ensis Lainson & Shaw, 1972…

Morphometric discrimination between females of two isomorphic sand fly species, Phlebotomus caucasicus and Phlebotomus mongolensis (Diptera: Phlebotominae) in endemic and non-endemic foci of zoonotic cutaneous leishmaniasis in Iran
The results show that morphological and morphometrical features can be used to discriminate two female isomorphic species, Phlebotomus caucasicus and Phle Botomus mongolensis accurately.
The role of wing geometric morphometrics in the identification of sandflies within the subgenus Lutzomyia
Wing geometry was useful in the Identification of some species of the Lutzomyia subgenus, but did not allow the identification of sibling species such as L. longipalpis and L. cruzi.
Automated identification of insect vectors of Chagas disease in Brazil and Mexico: the Virtual Vector Lab
A fully automated system that is able to identify triatomine bugs from Mexico and Brazil with an accuracy consistently above 80%, and with considerable potential for further improvement is presented.

Guide to the Identification and Geographic Distribution of Lutzomyia Sand Flies in Mexico, the West Indies, Central and South America (Diptera:Psychodidae)
Abstract : Nearly 400 species and subspecies of phlebotomine sand flies in the medically important genus Lutzomyia are identified by taxanomic keys to the adults and by associated illustrations.
Morphometric and molecular differentiation of Phlebotomus (Phlebotomus) sandflies
A morphometric and a molecular study to determine reliable morphological features and develop a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay for distinguishing females of these species and have important applications for studies of the epidemiology of cutaneous leishmaniasis.
7ª Contribuição ao estudo dos Flebotomus (Diptera: Psychodidae): descrição dos machos de 24 novas espécies
The A. A. proposes the same of Pressatia as sub-genus in honor to whom demonstrated the medical importance of the flebotomi, considering F. triacanthus as the type specie of this sub- Genus Shannonomyia.
Geographical versus interspecific differentiation of sand flies (Diptera: Psychodidae): a landmark data analysis
The use of geometric morphometrics to resolve sandfly systematics was explored and it was shown that the size of their wings, as a taxonomic criterion, could easily be confounded by geographic variation, whereas their geometry had significantly more taxonomic power.
A Redescription of Lutzomyia (Nyssomyia) intermedia (Lutz & Neiva, 1912), and Resurrection of L. neivai (Pinto, 1926) (Diptera, Psychodidae, Phlebotominae)
The two species can be differentiated by differences in the spermathecae, common ducts and number of cibarial horizontal teeth of the females and in the size and proportions of several structures of both sexes.
Quantitative phenetics and taxonomy of some phlebotomine taxa.
This study is a phenetic portrayal of this history based on the genetic relationships among some New Word and Old Word taxa, which revealed relationships that disagree with the present classification of sand flies.
Proven and putative vectors of American cutaneous leishmaniasis in Brazil: aspects of their biology and vectorial competence.
The aim of the present review is to give relevant information on aspects of the biology and ecology, including the vectorial competence of Lutzomyia sand fly species suggested as vectors of American
Polymorphism, inter-population and inter-specific variation in Nyssomyia intermedia (Lutz & Neiva) and Nyssomyia neivai (Pinto) (Diptera, Psychodidae, Phlebotominae)
The number of horizontal teeth and the shape of the terminal knob of the spermathecae were variable throughout the populations of both species and all structures were polymorphic in the populations studied.
A system of abbreviations, similar to that utilized for Culicidae, is proposed here for these groups of Phlebotominae, using two letters for genera and three for subgenera.
