 en Descriptions of Lutzomyia (Evandromyia) georgii check for this species in other resources n. sp. and a Synopsis of the Series infraspinosa (Diptera: Psychodidae)
Rui A Freitas & Toby V Barrett

Abstract

Lutzomyia georgii check for this species in other resources n. sp. and the female of L. tarapacaensis in the Series infraspinosa of the subgenus Evandromyia are described, from specimens collected in rainforest in the north of the State of Pará, Brazil. The new species was taken together with five other Evandromyia species including L. infraspinosa (sensu strictu) in the same locality. L. georgii has previously been confused with both L. begonae and L. infraspinosa, whereas L. tarapacaensis would run to L. infraspinosa in recent taxonomic keys. The fact that both L. georgii and L. tarapacaensis are locally sympatric with L. infraspinosa helps to clarify the taxonomic limits of the latter species. New keys to the subgenus Evandromyia check for this species in other resources are provided.
