During the course of taxonomic studies of New World phlebotomine sand flies, it was discovered that the female specimen considered to be the female of Lutzomyia lutziana
does not belong to this species. A new description of the female of L. lutziana
is presented, based on specimens captured in Lassance, State of Minas Gerais, the type locality of the species. The male of L. lutziana
is also redescribed, based on an exemplar caught in Curvelo, State of Minas Gerais.
