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).
