ecology of phlebotomine sand flies (diptera: psychodidae) in a focus of leishmania (viannia) braziliensis in northeastern colombia.the phlebotomine sand fly fauna of two coffee plantations in a leishmania-endemic area of norte de santander, colombia was studied. regular insect collections using a variety of methods were made for three and a half years. information was obtained on diurnal resting sites, host range and seasonal abundance for 17 species, of which five (lutzomyia spinicrassa, lu. serrana, lu. shannoni, lu. ovallesi and lu. gomezi) were far more numerous than the others, anthropophilic and present throughout the ...19921343648
dispersal of phlebotomine sand flies (diptera: psychodidae) in a colombian focus of leishmania (viannia) braziliensis.dispersal of five species of phlebotomine sand flies was studied in a coffee plantation near arboledas, colombia, by mark-release-recapture studies using fluorescent powders. the estimated recapture rate for males of lutzomyia shannoni marked and released during the day was 28.1%, significantly higher than that for all other species (p < 0.05). recapture rate of female lu. shannoni was 9.5%, and no females of the other four species were recovered. this suggests either that lu. shannoni is a more ...19921343649
the sandfly fauna, anthropophily and the seasonal activities of pintomyia spinicrassa (diptera: psychodidae: phlebotominae) in a focus of cutaneous leishmaniasis in northeastern colombia.this study was conducted to identify the sandfly fauna and the anthropophilic species in a coffee-growing area of villanueva, norte de santander, colombia, a focus of american cutaneous leishmaniasis, and to analyse the relationship between the most frequent species and rainfall, relative humidity and temperature, with the aim of contributing to epidemiological surveillance in the area. sandfly collections were performed fortnightly between february 2006-september 2007 using automatic light trap ...023778653
