Se determino la presencia de flebotomineos naturalmente infectados con parasitos tripanosomatideos en Los Montes de Maria, Colombia, region endemica de leishmaniosis visceral y cutanea. Los especimenes se colectaron usando trampas de luz tipo CDC y trampas de papel impregnado con aceite de ricino instaladas en el intradomicilio y peridomicilio. Se identificaron 6 especies de Lutzomyia entre los 159 flebotomineos recolectados: Lu. evansi, Lu. cayennensis cayennensis, Lu. trinidadensis, Lu… Expand

Surveillance of phlebotomine fauna and Didelphis marsupialis (Didelphimorphia: Didelphidae) infection in an area highly endemic for visceral leishmaniasis in Colombia.
The presence of the Lutzomyia species that have been identified as vectors for Leishmania inside and around houses in the village of El Bledo, in El Carmen de Bolívar represents a risk of infection and it is necessary to carry out further longitudinal studies to confirm this hypothesis. Expand

The genus  Lutzomyia has a variety of species, where some are vectors of the disease called leishmaniasis which has implications for public health developing different clinical manifestations thatExpand
Molecular detection and identification of Wolbachia in three species of the genus Lutzomyia on the Colombian Caribbean coast
Genetic analysis indicated that the Wolbachia strains wLcy and wLev belong to the B Supergroup, and provides evidence of infections of more than one strain of WolbachIA in L. c. Expand
Diversidad de flebotominos en una zona endémica de leishmaniasis visceral americana en Venezuela
Although in their sample the authors have not found any evidence that phlebotominae were infected by Leishmania; evidence presented is important for a better understanding of a vector that participates in AVL transmission. Expand

Isolations of Leishmania braziliensis (Kinetoplastida: Trypanosomatidae) from cryopreserved Colombian sand flies (Diptera: Psychodidae)
Of 18,463 Lutzomyia sand flies captured near Arboledas, Norte de Santander, Colombia, and cryopreserved in liquid nitrogen, 11 had natural flagellate infections and represent the only confirmed isolations of Leishmania from Colombian sand flies. Expand
Leishmaniasis in Colombia. I. Studies on the phlebotomine fauna associated with endemic foci in the Pacific Coast region.
Studies on the phlebotomine fauna related to the leishmaniasis endemic foci of the Colombian Pacific Coast were carried out in the municipalities of Tumaco and Buenaventura. In Inguapí del Guadual,Expand
Bionomics of Lutzomyia evansi (Diptera: Psychodidae) vector of visceral leishmaniasis in northern Columbia.
Sand flies were most abundant toward the end of the rainy season (October-December), for this reason, control strategies based on reducing sand fly populations or avoiding human-vector contact should be concentrated during the October-December period. Expand
Age structure, blood-feeding behavior, and Leishmania chagasi infection in Lutzomyia longipalpis (Diptera: Psychodidae) at an endemic focus of visceral leishmaniasis in Colombia.
The data suggest that L. longipalpis rest inside houses after blood-feeding outdoors, and that this species can blood-feed more than once during a single gonotrophic cycle. Expand
Species composition and relative abundance of sand flies of the genus Lutzomyia (Diptera: Psychodidae) at an endemic focus of visceral leishmaniasis in Colombia.
Sticky paper traps, especially inside houses and at rock resting sites, collected a greater diversity of species, but a lower relative abundance of L. longipalpis than hand-held aspirators, which captured most efficiently by direct aspiration from animal bait. Expand
Guide to the Identification and Geographic Distribution of Lutzomyia Sand Flies in Mexico, the West Indies, Central and South America (Diptera:Psychodidae)

Impact of Habitat Degradation on Phlebotominae (Diptera: Psychodidae) of Tropical Dry Forests in Northern Colombia
Habitat degradation negatively affected sand fly communities, but medically important species were able to exploit modified environments, thereby contributing to Leishmania endemicity. Expand
Leishmania herreri (Kinetoplastida; Trypanosomatidae) is more closely related to Endotrypanum (Kinetoplastida; Trypanosomatidae) than to Leishmania.
Since L. herreri was first described in 1979, no further isolates have been identified and some doubts have been expressed as to the classification of this parasite, but the 16 original strains were isolated from sloths and sandflies in Costa Rica. Expand
