Abstract

Cutaneous leishmaniasis is endemic in southern Mexico and is caused by the parasite Leishmania mexicana. Transmission of parasite is by the bite of phlebotomid sand fly vectors. We report the finding of sand fly species at several locations in the state of Yucatán from November 2001 to March 2003. Six species are reported for the first time, Brumptomyia galindoi, B. hamata, L. carpenteri, L. deleoni, L. shannoni and L. olmeca olmeca. Other species previously reported from the Yucatán –L. cayennensis, L. longipalpis, and L. trinidadensis – also were collected.
