Abstract:

The Technical Bulletin on the bloodsucking psychodid flies of Columbia was made available in June, 1979. Two other papers, based on feild work near Manaus, Brazil in 1979,are in press. A proven vector of leishmaniasis, Lutzomyia wellcomei, and 39 other species, some of which are undescribed, were collected during this trip. Other specimens given to the Principal Investigator from various countries have appreciably added to the reference collection, now ranked as the most comprehensive in the New World. a laboratory colony of an undescribed species from Florida, an autogenous strain, was established. A critical study of the literature and specimens, resulting in a catalog of the American phlebotminae of Ecuador was completed.
