ANDRADE FILHO, José Dilermando; CARVALHO, Gustavo Mayr de Lima; SARAIVA, Lara  y  FALCAO, Alda Lima. Bilateral anomaly in the style of Micropygomyia schreiberi (Martins, Falcão & Silva) (Diptera, Psychodidae). Rev. Bras. entomol. [online]. 2004, vol.48, n.4, pp. 583-585. ISSN 1806-9665.

This paper presents a specimen of phlebotomine sand fly with a bilateral anomaly in the style. Although such anomaly be rare in this group of insects, it may cause confusion in taxonomic identification and even lead to description of new species, increasing the number of synonymies. The specimen was measured and compared with the holotype and four paratypes of Micropygomyia schreiberi (Martins, Falcão & Silva, 1975) and confirmed that it belongs, in fact, to this species.
