Lutzomyia diabolica (Hall, 1936)

This sand fly species is found in southern North America. It bites humans and can be artificially infected with Leishmania mexicana. In Texas, it has been found to undergo 1 or 2 generations in the summer, then lays diapause eggs in September which do not hatch until April or May in the following year (cited by Lawyer et al., 2017).
