widespread distribution in South America, found in nine Brazilian
states, naturally infected by Trypanosoma cruzi and  T.

incubation time, search for first meal after eclosion or moult, time
- lapse between presentation of the blood meal and the beginning of
feeding, duration of blood meal, time and place of defecation,
number of blood meals, duration of each instar and adult longevity,
and time required from egg to adult.
