Biology of Lutzomyia lenti (Mangabeira) (Diptera: Psychodidae)
Anais da Sociedade Entomológica do Brasil 26 (1), 191-193
Abstract: The rearing and biology of Lutzomyia lenti (Mangabeira) was studied, including its susceptibility to Leishmania infection. The species is common in Brazil, also in areas where cutaneous and visceral leishmaniasis is found. Larvae could be reared with a mixture of rabbit feces, compost, dried lettuce and fish food. The preliminary results indicated that this species is resistant to Leishmania.
