R Fernandez; EB Galati; F Carbajal; MT Wooster & DM Watts


A new species of phlebotomine sand fly, Lutzomyia adamsi n. sp., is
described and illustrated from specimens collected during August 1994, in
Sandia, Department of Puno-Peru. According to the Oficina Nacional de
Evaluacion de Recursos Naturales(ONERN 1976), this locality is situated in
the life zone known as humid, mountain, low tropical forest (bh-MBT). Many
areas in the northern part of Puno, mainly in the Inambari and Tambopata
basins, are endemic to leishmaniasis. These areas are the continuation of 
others, largely known as "leishmaniasic" in the departments of Cusco and
Madre de Dios. The morphological characteristics indicated that this
species belongs to the genus Lutzomyia, subgenus Helcocyrtomyia Barretto,
