Abstract

We present the results of recording male courtship songs of the sandfly Lutzomyia longipalpis. The striking differences in the songs from 3 Brazilian populations of this sandfly with 3 distinct male pheromones support the 3 sibling species previously proposed based on this characteristic.

Keywords: Lutzomyia longipalpis; copulatory songs; sibling species; Brazil
