Abstract

A total of 191 adult sand flies belonging to the genus Sergentomyia were collected from seven villages in Karimnagar and Warangal districts of Andhra Pradesh State, India, after an outbreak of encephalitis due to Chandipura virus (CHPV). Fifteen pools, each containing two specimens, were tested by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction and sequencing. One pool of Sergentomyia from Kolanur village in Karimnagar District was positive for CHPV.
