About Phlebotomus perniciosus

Phlebotomus is a genus of "sand flies" in the Diptera family Psychodidae. In the past, they have sometimes been considered to belong in a separate family, Phlebotomidae, but this alternative classification is not yet widley accepted.

In the Old World, Phlebotomus sand flies are primarily responsible for the transmission of leishmaniasis,[1] an important parasitic disease, while transmission in the New World, is generally via sand flies of the genus Lutzomyia.[2] The protozoan parasite itself (Leishmania infantum)is a species of the genus Leishmania. Leishmaniasis is a deaedly disease, normally finds a mammalian reservoir in rodents and other small animals such as canids (canine leishmaniasis). The female sand fly carries the Leishmania protozoa from infected animals after feeding, thus transmitting the disease, while the male feeds on plant nectar.
