 en RESEARCH NOTE - Influence of preparation methods on the dimensions of Lutzomyia intermedia (Lutz & Neiva, 1912) (Diptera, Psychodidae, Phlebotominae)
Carlos Brisola Marcondes; Aloisio Falqueto & Ana Leuch Lozovei


Morphometry was fundamental for the characterization of phlebotomine
sandflies (e.g. R Newstead 1911). After the discovery of the importance 
of female cibarium, spermathecae and its ducts (S Adler & O Theodor 1926), 
it became less used. However, the great number of sandfly species, some of
them very similar, and studies of variations related to season or locality
induced a need of studies of measurements.
