Ultrastructure of the Antennae and Sensilla of Nyssomyia intermedia (Diptera: Psychodidae), Vector of American Cutaneous Leishmaniasis

Abstract: The antennal sensilla and the antenna of females Nyssomyia intermedia, one of the main vectors of American cutaneous leishmaniasis, were studied by scanning electron microscopy. The main goal was to characterize the quantity, typology, and topography of the sensilla with particular attention to the olfactory types. The insects were captured in the city of Corte de Pedra, State of Bahia, Brazil, by CDC-type light traps and raised in a laboratory as a new colony. Fourteen well-differentiated sensilla were identi… Show more

“…In the present study, the shape and number of the antennal segments of the males and females P. papatasi coincide with the previously described in the New World sand flies: males and females of Lutzomyia longipalpis (Fernandes et al, 2008); the females of Nyssomyia intermedia (Fernandes et al, 2020) and Old World sand flies: Ilango (2000) in female P. argentipes; and Bahia et al (2021) in females P. duboscqi. Few studies were available in literature on the antennae of male sand flies.…”

“…The sensillary classification were performed according to the descriptions of morphological types illustrated in specialized literature. To classify sensillary types, we adopted the nomenclature originally developed by researchers in insect sense organs (e.g., McIver, 1982;Zacharuk, 1985;Hallberg & Hansson, 1999) and updated for the sensory subtypes by Fernandes et al (2020). The general aspects of the antennal segments of P. papatasi as well as the typology and distribution of antennal sensilla have been documented by SEM and discussed with the previous studies carried out on P. papatasi (Jobling, 1987;Quate, 1964;Zayed et al, 2002a) and other sand fly species (Ilango, 2000;Zayed et al, 2002aZayed et al, , 2002bFernandes et al, 2008;Fernandes et al, 2020;Bahia et al, 2021).…”
