Epidemiological aspects of the american cutaneous leishmaniasis 5. stratification of the spatial and seasonal activities of the phlebotominae diptera psychodidae in the agricultural cultivated area of ribeira valley sao paulo state brazil

This paper deals with the investigation on the composition and stratification of the Phebotominae activity developed in patch and clear areas of high agricultural activity. The employment of a CDC light trap proved to be a useful tool in determining the local fauna. Thirteen species of sandflies and a total of 5,423 individuals were caught. The catch places situated in the ecotone were the ones in which the results reached their best, being outstanding for Psychodopygus intermedius, Lutzomyia migonei and L. fischeri. Thereby, data lead us to believe they have acrodendrophilous habit. On the other hand, when the global results were gathered according to male and female categories, the first one proved to be predominant. In the analysis of seasonal distribution for the three species cited, it was clear that the high-activity peaks were bi- and tri-modal for different seasons. P. intermedius was almost the exclusive sandfly caught at ground level in the Autumn season. This exclusiveness has practically extended itself to the catch places situated in open field.
