 en RESEARCH NOTE - Lutzomyia neivai (Pinto, 1926) in Bolivia (Diptera, Psychodidae, Phlebotominae)
Carlos Brisola Marcondes; Francois Le Pont & Ana Leuch Lozovei

Abstract

CB Marcondes (1996) proposed the revalidation of Lutzomyia neivai 
(Pinto, 1926) which, together with L. intermedia s. s., would form
the L. intermedia complex. Insects of this complex have been
reported in Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay [DG Young & M Duncan 1994], and
have been incriminated as vectors of dermal leishmaniasis in Sao Paulo (OP
Forattini et al. 1976) and Rio de Janeiro (e. g., EF Rangel et al. 1990).
However, FA  Squire (1972) and F Le Pont et al. (1992) mentioned the
presence of L. intermedia in Bolivia.
