OLIVEIRA, Ailse Silva de et al. Confirmation of the occurrence of Panstrongylus rufotuberculatus (Champion, 1899) in the state of Acre, Western Amazon. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2019, vol.52, e20180388.  Epub Apr 11, 2019. ISSN 0037-8682.


This study aimed to confirm the occurrence of Panstrongylus rufotuberculatus in the state of Acre, Brazil.


The four specimens of P. rufotuberculatus were obtained from the entomological collection of the Zoobotanical Park of the Federal University of Acre (UFAC).


Confirmation of the occurrence of this species in the state of Acre increases the number of species already registered, from nine to ten.


The necessity to develop further studies was verified, especially with the domiciliary process of P. rufotuberculatus, resulting in tracing prophylactic measures against the vector transmission of Trypanosoma cruzi.

Keywords : Triatominae; American trypanosomiasis; Chagas disease.
