ABSTRACT: We report the results of an investigation of natural larval sand fly habitats in the Recanto Marista, Doutor Camargo municipality, Paraná state, Brazil, from May, 2010 to August, 2012. We used Alencar emergence traps (AT), experimental traps (ET), and soil samples incubated in a biochemical oxygen demand incubator. Eight sand flies were collected with ATs. One specimen was collected with an ET and 21 were collected in soil samples. The collected species were Brumptomyia brumpti… 
First record of larval microhabitats of sandflies in Mexico with the description of the fourth instar larva of Brumptomyia hamata
Despite the medical importance of sandflies as vectors, immature stages of phlebotomine sandflies have never been found in the wild in Mexico and in the present investigation, it is sought to identify specific microhabitats associated with the presence of sandfly immature stages.
Peridomestic natural breeding sites of Nyssomyia whitmani (Antunes and Coutinho) in an endemic area of tegumentary leishmaniasis in northeastern Argentina
A high spatial variability was observed in the emergence of Ny.
Molecular typing reveals the co-existence of two transmission cycles of American cutaneous leishmaniasis in the Andean Region of Venezuela with Lutzomyia migonei as the vector
The aim of this work was to understand the epidemiological cycles of Leishmania spp.


Study on phlebotomine sand fly (Diptera: Psychodidae) fauna in Belo Horizonte, state of Minas Gerais, Brazil.
Environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, and frequency of precipitation suggest that the number of insects increases after rainy periods, and Leishmania DNA was present in any of the specimens tested.

A soil emergence trap for investigating potential sand fly breeding sites is described and tested in two rural areas in the Mogi Guaçu River Valley where the American cutaneous leishmaniasis is an endemic disease.
Natural Breeding Places for Phlebotomine Sand Flies (Diptera: Psychodidae) in a Semiarid Region of Bahia State, Brazil
The present study conducted in a dry region with a semiarid climate may furnish a tool for optimizing the control of the sand flies, by indicating the most suitable periods and microhabitats for the application of insecticides.
Breeding places of Phlebotomus ariasi in the cevennes focus of leishmaniasis in the south of France.
In a search for sandfly breeding sites in the Cévennes, France, six larvae of Phlebotomus ariasi were found in rotted manure in a cellar housing goats, and six adult flies of the same species were
Informações preliminares sobre flebotomíneos do norte do Paraná
Investigations on the participation of domestic animals and phlebotomine fauna in the epidemiology of tegumentary leishmaniasis should be routine in health surveillance, especially where this disease is endemic.
Naturally infected Lutzomyia sand flies in a Leishmania-endemic area of Brazil.
PCR analyses showed that two pools originating from Santa Luzia, a municipality near Belo Horizonte, capital of the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, were infected with Leishmaniasis, suggesting that Lu.
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.
Distribution of sand flies (Diptera: Psychodidae) at different altitudes in an endemic region of American cutaneous leishmaniasis in the State of Espírito Santo, Brazil.
Results reinforce those published in the existing literature, which indicate that Lu.
Impact of Control Measures and Dynamics of Sand Flies in Southern Brazil
The results of control measures introduced to reduce the density of sand flies in domiciles and subsequent monitoring of the effects of these measures on the sand fly populations are reported.
