“…El año 2017 se estableció, por primera vez, la presencia de Panstrongylus lignarius, también conocido como Panstrongylus herreri, en el estado de Rondonia, Brasil, cuya aparición era preocupante, porque se encontró que esta especie es-taba infectada naturalmente con Trypanosoma cruzi y había evidencia de sus capacidades de encontrarse localizada en otros países de América del Sur (16) . Por su parte, Ribero (17) y colaboradores reportaron la presencia de P. lignarius (P. herreri) en el estado de Acre, zona limítrofe con el departamento de Madre de Dios.…”

“…Research carried out in this state has already described the occurrence of triatomines in homes 5,6 , however, no studies have investigated the occurrence of triatomines inside homes in the Juruá Valley region in the extreme south-western region of Brazil bordering Peru. Thus, the aim of this study was to describe the occurrence of triatomines and infection by trypanosomatids inside home environments in the municipality of Cruzeiro do Sul, Acre, Brazil.…”

“…Several species of triatomines have recently been reported in Brazilian states: Rhodnius montenegrensis (Rosa et al, 2012) in Amazonas 24 ; T. sordida and Rhodnius neglectus (Lent, 1954); Rhodnius stali (Lent, Jurberg, and Galvão, 1993); R. montenegrensis, P. megistus, and Panstrongylus rufotuberculatus (Champion, 1899); Panstrongylus lignarius (Walker, 1873) in Acre [25][26][27][28][29][30][31] ; P. lignarius and P. megistus in Rondonia 29,32 ; and, now, T. infestans in Espírito Santo. These ento-epidemiological surveys are of great importance for public health because the knowledge of fauna (local, regional, municipal, and/or state) of triatomines directly assists in the activities of vector control programs.…”
