sand fly fauna (diptera: psychodidae: phlebotominae) in an area of leishmaniasis transmission in the municipality of rio branco, state of acre, brazil.notifications concerning american cutaneous leishmaniasis have increased in recent years in the state of acre, brazil. despite identification of distinct leishmania species isolated from cutaneous lesions, there are still no records of visceral leishmaniasis in the state. however, studies on the sand fly fauna in this region are still limited.201425103985
phlebotomine sandflies (diptera: psychodidae) from lábrea, state of amazonas, brazil, with a description of evandromyia (aldamyia) apurinan shimabukuro, figueira & silva, sp. nov.an entomological survey was conducted from july-december 2009 and september-december 2010, as part of the epidemiological monitoring of american cutaneous leishmaniasis (acl) in the municipality of lábrea, state of amazonas (am), brazil. sandflies were collected using cdc light traps installed in intra and peridomiciliary locations, as well as the border of forested areas around houses where autochthonous cases of acl were recorded. a total of 510 sandflies belonging to 26 species were collected ...023778658
sand flies (diptera, psychodidae, phlebotominae), vectors of leishmania protozoa, at an atlantic forest conservation unit in the municipality of nísia floresta, rio grande do norte state, brazil.sand flies are insect vectors of protozoa from the genus leishmania, causative parasites of visceral and american tegumentary leishmaniases. the present study discusses the bioecological aspects of sand fly species, transmitters of leishmania protozoa, in different ecotopes of an atlantic forest conservation unit located in the metropolitan region of natal, rio grande do norte state, brazil.201626864023
ecological interactions among phlebotomines (diptera: psychodidae) in an agroforestry environment of northeast brazil.phlebotomine vectors transmit parasites and can cause visceral leishmaniasis (vl) or cutaneous leishmaniasis (tl). phlebotomine females are hematophagous but need to ingest carbohydrates, possibly promoting the development of protozoan parasites in their digestive tract. the present study evaluated the species composition and abundance across several habitats in a metropolitan landscape, as well as associations among phlebotomines, plants, and local climatic parameters. three consecutive monthly ...201324581360
the role of gallery forests in maintaining phlebotominae populations: potential leishmania spp. vectors in the brazilian savanna.knowledge on synanthropic phlebotomines and their natural infection by leishmania is necessary for the identification of potential areas for leishmaniasis occurrence.201728953996
