[Taxonomy and geographic distribution of Phlebotomus (Adlerius) chinensis s. l. and P. (Larroussius) major s. l. (Psychodidae-Diptera). Status of species present in Greece].

[Article in French]


Vectors of leishmaniasis have to be identified with precision. Some subspecies of the subgenus Adlerius and Larroussius have been recently raised to the specific level. Paleobiogeography justifies this opinion. So some past identifications and repartition maps have to be revised. According comparisons between sandflies from various areas, it has been established that the species present in Greece are: Phlebotomus neglectus for Larroussius of the major group and P. simici and P. balcanicus for Adlerius subgenus.
