Abstract

The phlebotomine sand fly, Lutzomyin longipalpis, is the vector of visceral leishmaniasis in the New World. Variability in its tergal spot morphology has led to conflicting interpretations of the species status of the various forms. An L. longipalpis field population from eastern Brazil was found with three co-occuning morphological variations-1-spot, 2-spot, and an intermediate form. Genetic profiles were established for each form. Fifteen isoenzyme loci provided the data matrix for comparison of generic variation among the forms. Spot patterns and isoenzyme frequencies fit Hardy-Weinberg expectations, and no significantdifferences in isoenzyme frequencies were associated with morphological phenotype. The spot phenotype appears to be a polymorphic characternot related to genetic isolation or differentiation at the species level.
