Abstract

The phlebotomine sand fly Lutzomyia evansi check for this species in other resources is recorded in Mexico for the first time. This species is a suspected vector of Leishmania infantum check for this species in other resources in other parts of its geographical range and was captured in a focus of American visceral leishmaniasis where the principal vector, Lu. longipalpis sensu lato, was also found. The relative public health importance of the two species in the study area (Chiapas state, Southern Mexico) is discussed.
