Abstract

Geographical Distribution and Alti-latitudinal Dispersion of Some Genera
and Species of the tribe Triatomini Jeannel, 1919 (Hemiptera, Reduviidae,
Triatominae) - With the currently known distribution of genera and species
of the tribe Triatomini Jeannel, 1919, maps and diagrams were prepared,
showing the geographical area occupied by the species and their respective
dispersion in grades of latitude and altitude. Two genera are not treated:
Panstrongylus Berg, 1879, already published and Triatoma Laporte, 1832,
that is being published partially in several articles. Genus Eratyrus Stal,
1859, has two species, while Dipetalogaster Usinger, 1939, Mepraia Mazza,
Gajardo  Joerg, 1940, Paratriatoma Barber, 1938 and recently created genus
Hermanlentia Jurberg Galvao, 1997, have only one each. The study of these
maps and diagrams permits a better knowledge about some ecological
requirements of Chagas' disease vectors and detects gaps in the
geographical distribution, where the species were not found but probably
they could be prevalent.

Keywords
geographical distribution - alti-latitudinal dispersion - Triatomini - Chagas' disease
