BEJARANO, EDUAR ELÍAS. Subfamily Trichomyiinae (Psychodidae) in the Continental and Insular Territory of Colombia. Acta biol.Colomb. [online]. 2006, vol.11, n.1, pp. 37-41. ISSN 0120-548X.
The subfamily Trichomyiinae is reported in the continental and insular territory of Colombia for the first time. A total of 111 males and 15 females of Trichomyia (Opisthotrichomyia) brevitarsa were captured using CDC light traps in tropical dry forests at the surroundings of the city of Sincelejo, department of Sucre, and Isla Fuerte, department of Bolivar. Collected psychodid flies exhibit all the morphological characteristics of Tr. brevitarsa, including the presence of sensory rods on the first and second palpomere. A high number of unidentified nematodes were observed in the abdomen of two of the females examined.
