Abstract: we present the results of anopheline captures in belém, pará, brazil, from 1995-2004, and a comparison with captures from 1930-1999. in the earlier period, 20 species were identified: anopheles albitarsis s.l., an. aquasalis, an. argyritarsis, an. braziliensis, an. darlingi, an. eiseni, an. evansae, an. galvaoi, an. intermedius, an. kompi, an. mediopunctatus, an. nimbus, an. nuneztovari, an. oswaldoi, an. peryassui, an. punctimacula, an. shannoni, an. strodei, an. thomasi, and an. triannulatus. seven of these species were not found in 1995-2004 (an. argyritarsis, an. eiseni, an. galvaoi, an. kompi, an. nimbus, an. punctimacula, and an. thomasi). the persistence of so many species is probably due to the local preservation of forest areas. two species are of vectorial importance (an. darlingi and an. aquasalis). an. aquasalis is still the most abundant species (46.26% of adults, 99.21% of larvae) and the only one detected in all capture sites. there is thus a potential risk of malaria transmission in the entire municipality of belém.

Abstract: the sand fly fauna in itatiaia national park, rio de janeiro, brazil, was investigated in different habitats ranging from sylvatic areas to those altered by human activity related to ecotourism, specifically identifying species that have been suggested as potential leishmaniasis vectors. sand flies were captured from june 2002 to march 2004, using cdc light traps and shannon traps. a total of 1,256 sand fly specimens were captured, from species belonging to genera lutzomyia and brumptomyia: brumptomyia guimaraesi, b. troglodytes, lutzomyia (lutzomyia) amarali, l. lanei, l. migonei, l. sallesi, l. edwardsi, l. tupynambai, l. (pintomyia) pessoai, l. (p.) bianchigalatie, l. rupicola, l. (psathyromyia) shannoni, l. pascalei, l. (psychodopygus) matosi, l. (p.) davisi, l. (p.) hirsuta hirsuta, l. (p.) ayrozai, l. peresi, l. monticola, and l. misionensis. worthy of special attention were four species that are considered potential vectors for cutaneous leishmaniasis in brazil: l. ayrozai, l. hirsuta hirsuta, l. migonei, and l. davisi, representing 19.19% of the specimens captured in this study.

Abstract: dengue and aedes aegypti are widespread in the state of maranh?o. during 1995, 87 of the 136 of the state's counties, including 176 towns and 480,687 households, were studied, of which 30 counties (34.4%), 118 towns (67.0%) and 10,357 households (2.1%) were positive for aedes aegypti. the positive counties are distributed as follow: 3 on s?o luís island, 7 in the amazonia of maranh?o, 12 in the southern zone of the cerrados or savannas, and 5 in the mixed forest/savanna/palm grove zone. one positive county for ae. aegypti was located in each of the following: alluvial fields, forest/palm grove, and sand dune/shoals areas. the ae. aegypti-positive household rates were higher in the amazonia of maranh?o (3.5%) and on s?o luís island (2.5%), because they are the most heavily traveled migratory and trade routes between maranh?o and neighboring states and are also the state's main economic centers. household infestation rates for ae. aegypti and reported dengue case rates were higher during the rainy season, showing the importance of rain in forming prime breeding sites for aedes and spreading dengue.

Abstract: this paper presents a preliminary check list of lutzomyia species from maranh?o state. the information derives from data gathered in the scarce literature on the distribution patterns of neotropical phlebotomines. there are 40 species reported in the state. most are amazonian in their distribution, while others come from the savanna domain of central brazil or have a widespread distribution in the neotropics. this can be explained by maranh?o's transitional position between the north, northeast, and central south of the country. of the species of sandflies reported, seven are currently considered vectors for cutaneous and visceral leishmaniases.
