Phlebotomine sand fly species composition and diversity were studied in Acosta, an area of Costa Rica endemic for cutaneous leishmaniasis. Two CDC miniature light traps per house were set overnight in 72 houses distributed in 6 localities, once a month, during the rainy seasons of 1994 and 1995. Of the 22 species collected, the most common were Lutzomyia serrana (Damasceno & Arouck), L. youngi Feliciangelli & Murillo, L. ylephiletor (Fairchild & Hertig), L. shannoni (Dyar), L. cruciata… CONTINUE READING
