Encontro de Haemagogus (Conopostegus) leucocelaenus (Diptera: Culicidae), no Município de Porto Alegre, Estado do Rio Grande do Sul

Abstract: Em novembro de 2006, foi realizada uma investigação entomológica numa mata nativa do município de Porto Alegre, Estado do Rio Grande do Sul. O resultado foi a captura de várias espécies Culicidae, incluindo o primeiro registro da presença de Haemagogus leucocelaenus na localidade. Esta espécie é considerada vetora do vírus da febre amarela em alguns municípios do Estado, motivando esta comunicação para alertar sobre o potencial da área para circulação do agente etiológico desta doença.

“…chloropterus females towards their hosts between the late morning hours and the early afternoon, a period of the day that corresponds to resting time for monkeys, the preferred hosts for these species. However, as found in other studies, these mosquitoes are also capable of using the forest floor, which was observed at the REBIO-Una and Lagoa Encantada sites (Guimarães et al 1985, Gomes et al 2007, Pinto et al 2009 janthinomys are an important vector of yellow-fever and Mayaro virus in sylvatic environments (Davis 1930, Thoisy et al 2003, Almeida et al 2014, while species of Sabethes are considered potential secondary vectors of yellow fever virus in Central and South America along with other arbovirus such as SLEV and ILHV (Forattini 1995). As described by Gomes et al (2010), species from the genus Sabethes were present in almost all of the same sites as Haemagogus sp.…”

“…Sylvatic YFV vectors are abundant in the treetops, with daytime activity peaking in the hottest hours of the day, corresponding to the resting period of the NHP in the canopy [87], favoring the hematophagy in NHP. H. leucocelaenus and H. janthinomys are primatophilic species, but occasionally they can be found at ground level in areas surrounding [88] or distant from the forests, including indoors [89], since they can can travel for long distances, as 5.7 km and 11.5 km, respectively [90]. H. leucocelaenus can adapt to human-modified environments, as periurban [83,86] and urban areas [91].…”

“…leucocelanus and Hg. janthinomys are considered primatophilic and typically found on the tree canopies, they can travel great distances and be found at ground level around forests or even feeding indoors in rural settings [45,[47][48][49]. The proximity of sylvatic vectors to peri-urban and urban areas should be of particular concern to public health authorities, considering the total reinfestation of major urban centers by Ae.…”
