Levantamento de flebotomíneos da Terra Indígena Wajãpi, Amazônia Oriental, Brasil
To contribute to the knowledge of the epidemiology of American cutaneous leishmaniasis (ACL) among indigenous people, we studied the sand fly fauna collected in areas of transmission of the disease in the Brazilian Amazon. Our dataset is comprised of occurrence data from the Wajapi Indigenous Land (Amapa state), collected between 2013-2014. Sand flies were collected with light traps at different sites and they were mainly identified to species level by taxonomists with expertise in Amazonian fauna. These records may contribute to a better understanding of ACL transmission dynamics as well as the distribution of vectors in these areas.
