BEJARANO, EDUAR ELÍAS; DUQUE, PATRICIA  and  VELEZ, IVÁN DARÍO. Confirmation of the presence of Lutzomyia lutziana (Diptera: Psychodidae) in Colombia. Caldasia [online]. 2007, vol.29, n.1, pp.153-157. ISSN 0366-5232.

The presence of the sand fly Lutzomyia lutziana in Colombia is confirmed by one male specimen collected in the Serranía de La Macarena National Natural Park. This male was collected with a mouth aspirator, while resting in an armadillo nest. Lutzomyia lutziana resembles L. campograndensis, the former differing essentially by the slender tip of the genital filaments and the proportion of the length of the genital filaments and genital pump greater than 2,1.

Keywords : Colombia; Lutzomyia; Phlebotominae; Psathyromyia; sand fly.
