About Phlebotomus papatasi
The sandfly Phlebotomus papatasi is the main vector of the Old World Cutaneous leishmaniasis. It is distributed from Morocco to the Indian subcontinent and from southern Europe to central and eastern Africa.
The Israeli strain of Ph. papatasi was originally was given to Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) in 1983 from the Hebrew University, Jerusalem. The population size of this colony fluctuated over time, experiencing several bottlenecks. The colony was expanded from a small number of flies at the University of Notre Dame.
