Resumen

OLIVEIRA, Sandra Maria Pereira de et al. Prevalence of the microbiota in the digestive tract of wild-caught females of Lutzomyia longipalpis (Lutz & Neiva) (Diptera: Psychodidae). Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2000, vol.33, n.3, pp. 319-322. ISSN 0037-8682.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0037-86822000000300012.

We dissected the digestive tract of 245 females in pools of 35 flies forming 7 groups. These flies were Lutzomyia longipalpis originating from Lapinha Cave, Lagoa Santa, Minas Gerais. Out of the 8 species of bacteria isolated there was a predominancy of Gram negative bacterias (GNB) in the group of non-fermenters of sugar belonging to the following species: Acinetobacter lwoffii, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, Pseudomonas putida and Flavimonas orizihabitans. The group of GNB fermenters were: Enterobacter cloacae and Klebsiella ozaenae. In the Gram positive group we isolated the genera Bacillus thuringiensis and Staphylococcus spp.
