“…Analyzing diverse populations of Lu. whitmani in Brazil, Ishikawa et al (1999) found uncorrected pairwise sequence differences in a 294-bp fragment of mitochondrial cytochrome b to range from 1.0 to 3.4%. A maximum-parsimony analysis of their sequence data did not infer the existence of two or more cryptic species but rather a "continuum of inter-breeding populations.…”

“…Rangel et al (1996) made it clear, however, that they did not discard the possibility that the populations they studied, from PA, CE and BA could represent a cline. Ishikawa et al (1999) studied populations from the North, Northeast, Southeast and the South Regions and indicated the existence of a clade from Rondônia (RO) within the lineage of forested areas, which included haplotypes of the Amazon and Atlantic Forests and Ilhéus (the type locality of L. whitmani). They suggested that their findings did not sustain the hypothesis of a cryptic species complex, but rather the occurrence of a recent crossing over of populations in forested areas.…”

“…Little is known about the molecular genetics of this group of sand flies (Esseghir et al, 1997;Ready et al, 1997Ready et al, , 1998Ishikawa et al, 1999). However, studies of the molecular phylogenetics of other arthropod groups suggest that sequence from region I of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase I (COI) gene might be informative for clarifying Lutzomyia taxonomy at the species level (Navajas et al, 1994(Navajas et al, , 1996(Navajas et al, , 1998Roderick and Gillespie, 1998).…”
