MISSAWA, Nanci Akemi  and  MACIEL, Giovana Belem Moreira Lima. List of species in the genus Lutzomyia, França, 1924 (Psychodidae, Phlebotominae) from the State of Mato Grosso. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2007, vol.40, n.1, pp.11-14. ISSN 0037-8682.

This work had the objective of listing the sand fly species that occur in the State of Mato Grosso, Brazil. Data relating to entomological surveys conducted between 1996 and 2004 were obtained from the National Health Foundation and the State Health Department, and this was supplemented with information from research carried out in the state and from the specialized literature. There were records of 106 sand fly species belonging to the genus Lutzomyia. This is a rich and diversified fauna, with some species restricted to forested areas and others recorded throughout the state, independent of the vegetation type, and in areas modified by human action, with predominance of Lutzomyia whitmani.

Keywords : Lutzomyia; Sand fly fauna; Mato Grosso.
