Abstract

MEMBRIVE, Norberto Assis et al. Sandflies of municipalities in North of Paraná State, South of Brazil. Entomol. vectores [online]. 2004, vol.11, n.4, pp. 673-680. ISSN 0328-0381.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0328-03812004000400009.

This work reports the results of sandfly collections in several places, during 2001 and 2002, in Bom Sucesso, Jardim Alegre, Kaloré, Londrina and Sabáudia municipalities, North of the State. The sandflies catches were performed with Shannon and Falcão traps in domiciliary areas, domestic animal shelters, barns and in the forest. A total of 4,019 specimens of 8 species were captured. Nyssomyia whitmani predominates in all of the municipalities. The species Migonemyia migonei, Nyssomyia neivai and N. whitmani may be involved in the epidemiology of American Tegumentary Leishmaniasis in this state.

Keywords : American Tegumentary Leishmaniasis; Nyssomyia whitmani; insect vectors; sandflies.
