, : A study of the phlebotomines in Araracuara, Caqueta, Colombia, S.A., including descriptions of Lutzomyia araracuarensis (Diptera, Psychodidae). Biomedica 1(3): 94-116

In the context of an investigation of the health of rural populations in the Amazon Basin in Colombia, with special reference to cutaneous leishmaniasis, a survey was carried out in Araracuara, Caqueta, in 1977 of the phlebotomine sandflies in the area. Various collecting methods were used (including Shannon traps, light-traps, human bait and aspiration of the flies from their resting sites) over an area of tropical rain forest about 1 km2 in extent.
