Abstract

Male Phlebotomus (Synphlebotomus) vansomerenae, specimens were collected together with two other members of the same subgenus between August 2010 and December 2011 in Melka Guba village near Dawa River in Liben district, southeastern Ethiopia. This is the first record of the species in Ethiopia and the first time it has been found outside of Kenya where it was originally described, extending the known distribution of this species in East Africa.
