This article reports a list with 912 specimens of the subfamily Triatominae deposited in the Entomological Collection of the Faculty of Public Health of the University of Sao Paulo. The collection is composed of 1 holotype, 3 alotypes, 15 paralectotypes, 77 paratypes, distributed in 5 tribes and 12 genera: Tribus Alberprosenini: genus Alberprosenia Martinez & Carcavallo, 1977; Tribus Bolboderini: genus Microtriatoma Prosen & Martinez, 1952; Tribus Cavernicolini: genus Cavernicola Barber, 1937; Tribus Rhodnini: genus Psammolestes Bergroth, 1941; genus Rhodnius Stal, 1859; Tribus Triatomini: genus Dipetalogaster Usinger 1939; genus Eratyrus Stal 1859; genus Hermanlentia Jurberg & Galvão, 1997; genus Linshcosteus Distant, 1904; 1944; genus Panstrongylus Berg 1879; genus Paratriatoma Barber 1938; genus Triatoma Laporte 1833.

Key words: Hemiptera; Reduviidae; Triatominae; Types; Entomological collection


Carlos Chagas, in 1909, working in the city of Lassance, Minas Gerais, Brazil, identified the vector of Chagas disease, which until then was known as Conorhinus megistus. Since that time, the number of described species of triatomines has been composed by 15 genera and 152 valid species, being two fossils (Triatoma dominicana Poinar, 2005 and Panstrongylus hispaniolae Poinar, 2013)1-5.

Collections of triatomine specimens have been reported by several researchers6-9. The recommendation 72G4 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN) emphasizes that any Institution should publish a list of the specimens it owns. The Entomological Collection of the Faculty of Public Health of the University of Sao Paulo was established on 16 July 1937 by John Lane and Paulo Cesar de Azevedo Antunes. Since then, the collection has been receiving a large number of insects of medical and sanitary importance, particularly from the families Culicidae and Psychodidae in Diptera and of the subfamily Triatominae, family Reduviidae in Hemiptera. Currently, this collection is under the curatorship of Prof. Dr. Maria Anice Murab Sallum. To get access to the collection, researchers must contact Dr. Sallum at Faculty of Public Health of the University of Sao Paulo.

The collection is known as John Lane Collection. At the beginning, specimens were registered only with a number of 3, 4 or 5 digits and no letters. The first list of specimens in the entomological collection was published in two parts as the first series. The first part refers to the Culicidae family10 and the second part is devoted to Ceratopogonidae, Pshychodidae and Simuliidae11 families. The second series of this collection began to be published on 6 March 1969, in the newly created Department of Epidemiology, Faculty of Public Health of the University of Sao Paulo, under the guidance of Professor Oswaldo Paulo Forattini. Records of specimens of this collection received a new numbering sequence, preceded by the letter E (for Epidemiology), and it is scheduled to continue without interruption. Of this second series, an article was published reporting the Culicidae records of the then newly created collection12. The present paper resumes the publication these catalogues listing the specimens of Triatominae (Hemiptera, Reduvidae) deposited in John Lane Collection.


The inventory of specimens of the subfamily Triatominae belonging to the Entomological collection of the Faculty of Public Health of the University of Sao Paulo, was prepared by checking the records of registrations, the data sheets and the observation of the deposited specimens. The regulations followed in this catalog are practically the same as those recommended in the previous series10-12:

  1. Specimens are listed in alphabetical order of genera and within these, by the same system in relation to species according to Justi and Galvão5. In this way, species of the genera Meccus Stål, 1859, Mepraia Mazza, Gajardo, & Jörg, 1940 and Nesotriatoma Usinger, 1944 were included in the genus Triatoma Laporte, 1833;

  2. The names of the specimens, for the most part, are the same as those corresponding to the last identification to which they were submitted;

  3. In case there have been changes in the specific status such as, synonymization or revalidation of species and genera, the information was included between keys the original label of the registry;

  4. After the name, the corresponding registration number in the collection is registered - sometimes more than one. To do this, the identification of the nature of the material, information on the origin and the person in charge of the identification (Ident.) are registered;

  5. The acronyms and symbols to indicate the nature of the material are as follows: G - Genitalia; E - The egg; Nn - nymph; ♂ - male adult; ♀ - female adult.

  6. The identification of the origin is registered in the following order: country or continent, locality, municipality, State. For this, as a rule in Brazil, the acronyms used with two capital letters. Following is the name responsible for identifying and year;

  7. When dealing with typical material, the indication was made in full, such as holotype, allotype, paratype, etc. Just as parts of the arthropod body are indicated, such as wing, genitalia, etc.;

  8. For several specimens, complete data were missing and in these circumstances they were presented to the extent that it was possible, by compiling the information contained in the respective sheet.


The Entomological Collection of the Faculty of Public Health of the University of Sao Paulo lists 912 specimens of the subfamily Triatominae. Although not very numerous, it is composed of examples of taxonomic importance listed below: 1 holotype (T. sherloki, ♂); 3 allotypes (T. sherloki, ♀; P. lenti, ♂; T. baratai, ♀), 1 lectotype (A. malheroi ♂); 15 paralectotype (A. malheroi ♂♂, ♀♀, Nns); 77 paratypes (A. malheiroi, Nns; T. bolivari ♂; T. brailovskyi ♂; T. garciabesi ♂ e ♀♀; T. lenti, ♂♂, ♀♀; T. infestans melanosoma, ♂; T. pessoai, ♂♂, ♀♀, Nns; T. pseudomaculata, ♂; T. sherloki; ♂♂, ♀♀, Nns). In addition, the following material distributes these species in 5 tribes and 12 genera: Tribe Alberprosenini: genus Alberprosenia Martinez & Carcavallo, 1977. Tribe Bolboderini: genus Microtriatoma Prosen & Martinez, 1952. Tribe Cavernicolini: genus Cavernicola Barber, 1937. Tribe Rhodnini: genus Psammolestes Bergkoth, 1941; genus Rhodnius Stal, 1859; Tribe Triatomini: genus Linshcosteus Distant, 1904. genus Dipetalogaster Usinger 1939; genus Eratyrus Stal 1859; genus Hermanlentia Jurberg & Galvão, 1997; genus Panstrongylus Berg 1879; genus Paratriatoma Barber 1938; genus Triatoma Laporte 1833.

The collection also includes representatives of the triatomine fauna of 21 Brazilian States, nine South American countries, three countries in Central America, the United States and India. And by the following material these specimens are distributed in 93 species according to Table 1.

To the late Professor Jose Maria Soares Barata, a senior lecturer at the Faculty of Public Health of the University of Sao Paulo (FSP/USP) who created this catalog and unfortunately cannot see it finished. For years, he dedicated his time to the study of triatomines, and, more than a mentor, he was a friend and often adviser of so many undergraduate and graduate students of FSP/USP. To Prof. Dr. Maria Anice Murab Sallum, curator of the Entomological Collection of FSP/USP who promptly gave access to all the information and species listed in this catalog. To the biologist Denise Cristina Sant’Ana and to the technician Caio Cesar Moreira for the attention and prompt service without which this work could not be elaborated.
