Abstract

Country-wide surveys for sand fly vectors of Leishmania were conducted during 1988 and 1989 in the Republic of Djibouti. Standardized, consistent sampling by oiled paper traps was concentrated within ten townsand encampments in four distinct ecological/altitudinal zones (coastal plain, 0-100 m; inland plateau, 400-750 m; mountain valley, 1,000 m;highland forest, > 1,500 m) and timed during three seasonal periods (cool-dry, October-November; cool-moist, January-February; hot-dry, June-July). A total of 8,492 specimens, representing 19 species and subspecies was identified. Phlebotomus species with proven or potential ability to transmit Leishmania accounted for 22 percent (1,902/8,492) of the identified collection and comprised 15 to 39 percent of each seasonal sample. Phlebotomus alexandri and Phlebotomus bergeroti were amongthe most common and widely distributed species, and made up 62 and 36percent, respectively, of the Phlebotomus collection. Phlebotomus sergenti and Phlebotomus orientalis were also found, hut at low numbers and from fewer locations. Seasonal densities were calculated, and a taxonomic key for the identification of the sand flies of Djibouti has been constructed. Survey results are compared with those of other countries in the region. The ecology, distribution, and public health importance of human-biting sand fly species found in Djibouti are discussed.
