Abstract

No per??odo de novembro de 2000 a novembro de 2001, foi realizado o estudo dos flebotom??neos nos munic??pios de Alto Capara?? e Capara??, com o objetivo de determinar a sua varia????o sazonal, comparar os pontos de estudo quanto ?? ocorr??ncia destes insetos e determinar os ambientes de preval??ncia destes. Foram realizadas coletas mensais, com armadilhas luminosas de Falc??o em nove pontos, sendo quatro armadilhas por ponto, nos seguintes ambientes: abrigo de animais, mata, cafezal e parede externa das casas. Lutzomyia intermedia(Lutz & Neiva, 1912) foi a esp??cie predominante, e o abrigo de animais o ambiente com maior ocorr??ncia de flebotom??neos. Encontrou-se diferen??a significativa na composi????o de esp??cies de flebotom??neos nos pontos estudados. Lutzomyia intermedia?? a esp??cie suspeita de transmitir a Leishmaniana regi??o.In the period from November of 2000 to November of 2001, a study of sand flies was realized in the municipalities of Alto Capara?? and Capara?? with the objective of determining their seasonal variation, comparing the points of study related to the occurrence of these insects and detecting their ideal environments. Monthly collections were carried out, with Falc??o light traps at nine points, four traps per point, in the following environments: of animals shelter, forest (bush), coffee plantation and the external walls of houses. Lutzomyia intermedia(Lutz & Neiva, 1912) was the predominant species, and animal shelter the environment with the largest occurrence of sand flies. A significant difference in the composition of sand fly species was found in the studied points. Lutzomyia intermediais the species suspected of transmitting Leishmaniain the region
