The phlebotomine sandflies of the province of Chaco, Argentina, are poorly known, with reports from more than 40 years or captures related with outbreaks of leishmaniasis. In here, 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. Mg. migonei, together with…

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.

Phlebotominae of epidemiological importance in cutaneous leishmaniasis in northwestern Argentina: risk maps and ecological niche models

An exploratory risk map and a potential distribution map of the vector are developed in order to offer recommendations for CL prevention in Argentina.

Considerations on the Species Complex of the Cortelezzii series (Diptera: Psychodidae) and Description of Evandromyia chacuensis sp. nov., a New Phlebotomine Species of the Chaco Region, Argentina

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.

Temporal distribution of, and effect of anthropic modifications on, phlebotomine populations in the Chaco Bioregion, Argentina

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.

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.

Description of Evandromyia cristacapita sp. nov., a new sand fly species of the Argentinian Chaco

A new species of phlebotomine sand fly collected in the rural and peri‐urban areas of wet and dry subregions of the Chaco Province, Argentina, is described and an identification key for the Cortelezzii series of the Barrettomyia subgenus with a new distinct species complex is presented.

Phlebotominae in peri‐domestic and forest environments inhabited by Alouatta caraya in northeastern Argentina

The results of this prospective study suggest that the interaction between phlebotomine and A. caraya could be a key factor with respect to understanding the epidemiology of leishmaniasis.

Spread of Phlebotominae in temperate climates: province of Córdoba, Argentina

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.

Incipient colonisation of Lutzomyia longipalpis in the city of Resistencia, province of Chaco, Argentina (2010-2012)

Lutzomyia longipalpis was recorded for the first time in Argentina in 2004, in the province of Formosa. In the following years, the vector spread to the south and west in the country and was recorded



Phlebotomines (Diptera: Psychodidae) in forested areas of the Serra da Bodoquena, state of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil.

Investigation was undertaken on the behaviour of the phlebotomine fauna in caves, forests, and anthropic environments of the Serra da Bodoquena, between January 1998 and January 2000. This paper

Phlebotomines (Diptera, Psychodidae) in caves of the Serra da Bodoquena, Mato Grosso do Sul State, Brazil

Lutzomyia almerioi was absolutely predominant over the other species on both sides of the Bodoquena ridge, with the exception of the southern caves in which it was absent, and presents summer predominance.

Redescription of Nyssomyia intermedia (Lutz & Neiva, 1912) and Nyssomyia neivai (Pinto, 1926) (Diptera: Psychodidae).

The phlebotomine sand flies Nyssomyia intermedia and N. neivai are redescribed here in the search for characters that facilitate their correct identification.

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.


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.

Flebótomos de Vargem Grande, foco de leishmaniose tegumentar no Estado do Rio de Janeiro

In Vargem Grande, an endemic area of cutaneous leishmaniasis in State of Rio de Janeiro, where Lutzomyia intermedia had been found infected with Leishmania braziliensis, we performed a series of

First visceral leishmaniasis focus in Argentina.

An eight-year old boy from Posadas (27 masculine 23'S, 55 masculine 54'W) was diagnosed with visceral leishmaniasis (VL) during 2006, which is the southernmost report of a VL transmission focus and the first in Argentina.
