Abstract

VIVERO, Rafael José et al. Thirteen new records of Lutzomyia (Diptera: Psychodidae) for the department of Vichada, Colombian Orinoquia. Biota Neotrop. [online]. 2010, vol.10, n.2, pp. 401-404. ISSN 1676-0603.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1676-06032010000200037.

Lutzomyia trinidadensis (Newstead, 1922), L. bettinii Feliciangeli, Ramírez-Pérez & Ramírez, 1988, L. flaviscutellata (Mangabeira, 1942), L. yuilli Young & Porter, 1972, L. saulensis (Floch & Abonnenc, 1944), L. runoides (Fairchild & Hertig, 1953), L. ayrozai (Barretto & Coutinho, 1940), L. claustrei Abonnenc, Leger & Fauran, 1979, L. walkeri (Newstead, 1914), L. preclara Young & Arias, 1984, L. (geniculata) sp., L. (squamiventris) sp., and L. (Evandromyia) sp., are recorded for the first time in the department of Vichada, Colombia. In addition, the presence of L. antunesi (Coutinho, 1939) and L. aragaoi (Costa Lima, 1932) in this department is confirmed. Sand flies were collected in the municipalities of Puerto Carreño, Cumaribo, and La Primavera, using CDC light traps, Shannon trap, and human bait, and by active search in resting places. The epidemiological importance of these sand fly species is discussed in relation with the cutaneous leishmaniasis.

Keywords : Sand flies; leishmaniasis; Lutzomyia; Orinoquia; Colombia.
