Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

Triatomines are hematophagous insects of epidemiological importance because they are vectors of Chagas disease. We present here the first report of Rhodnius montenegrensis in Amazonas, Brazil.

METHODS:

Triatomines were collected from Attalea butyracea palm trees in the municipality of Guajará.

RESULTS:

Two adult female R. montenegrensis specimens were identified.

CONCLUSIONS:

The present study confirms that the number of triatomine species within the Amazon has increased from 10 to 11, and the number of Brazilian states with R. montenegrensis has increased from two to three.
