Abstract

The occurrence of an outbreak of cutaneous leishmaniasis associated with Leishmania (Leishmania) amazonensis in the municipality of Bela Vista, state of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, and the absence of information on its vectors in this area led the authors to undertake captures of phlebotomine sand flies, using Shannon traps and automatic CDC light traps, in domiciles, forested areas and animal shelters from February 2004-January 2006. A total of 808 specimens belonging to 18 sandfly species have been identified: Bichromomyia flaviscutellata check for this species in other resources , Brumptomyia avellari check for this species in other resources , Brumptomyia brumpti check for this species in other resources , Brumptomyia check for this species in other resources sp, Evandromyia aldafalcaoae check for this species in other resources , Evandromyia cortelezzii check for this species in other resources , Evandromyia evandroi check for this species in other resources , Evandromyia lenti check for this species in other resources , Evandromyia teratodes check for this species in other resources , Evandromyia termitophila check for this species in other resources , Lutzomyia longipalpis check for this species in other resources , Nyssomyia whitmani check for this species in other resources , Pintomyia christenseni check for this species in other resources , Psathyromyia aragaoi check for this species in other resources , Psathyromyia campograndensis check for this species in other resources , Psathyromyia punctigeniculata check for this species in other resources , Psathyromyia shannoni check for this species in other resources and Sciopemyia sordellii check for this species in other resources . The presence of Lu. longipalpis, Ny. whitmani and Bi. flaviscutellata, vectors of Leishmania chagasi check for this species in other resources , Leishmania braziliensis check for this species in other resources and L. amazonensis, respectively, has increased.
