RAMOS, Carlos José Raupp; TAVARES, Kaio César Simiano; KOMATI, Larissa Kaori Oide  and  MILETTI, Luiz Claudio. Colonization by Panstrongylus megistus (Hemiptera, Reduviidae, Triatominae) inside homes in São José do Cerrito, SC: first report. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2008, vol.41, n.4, pp.421-423. ISSN 0037-8682.

In response to complaints of the presence of triatomines in a fishing hut on the banks of the Caveiras river, in the municipality of São José do Cerrito, State of Santa Catarina, an investigation was conducted in this hut and in other ecotopes neighboring the initial finding. Fifteen specimens of Panstrongylus megistus were found and none of them were infected. The locality of this ecotope is visited occasionally by capybaras, opossums, armadillos and rats.
