Although Panstrongylus lutzi (Neiva and Pinto) is currently the fifth most frequent species of Triatominae captured in artificial structures in Brazil, its silvatic habitat remains unknown. A survey of its natural ecotopes was performed in an area of Bahia State. P. lutzi nymphal instars and adults were detected in burrows of Dasypodidae. Silvatic habitat of four other endemic triatomine species of the caatinga (Triatoma pseudomaculata Correa and Espinola, Triatoma brasiliensis Neiva, Rhodnius neglectus Lent, and Psammolestes tertius Lent and Jurberg) was also recorded.
