Cuticular hydrocarbon analysis as a tool in sandfly identification



Cuticular hydrocarbon analysis as a tool in sandfly identification



Leishmaniasis: The current status and new strategies for control Proceedings of a NATO Advanced Study Institute on leishmaniasis: The first centenary 1885-1985, new strategies for control, Zakinthos, Greece, 20-27 September 1987: 225-234



The use of cuticular hydrocarbon analysis in the identification of sibling species of sandfly vector complexes is reviewed. Examples cited include Lutzomyia longipalpis populations from Brazil (where 2 distinct forms of the male exist, and are characterized by either a single pale patch on the 4th abdominal tegite or by patches on the 3rd and 4th tergites), the Psychodopygus squamiventris series from Brazil (made up of P. squamiventris s.s., P. wellcomei and P. complexus (N.B.
