Abstract

Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) is quite common in northern Pakistan whereas cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is a very usual disease in south western Pakistan. Study of the leishmaniasis is impossible without correct identification of the sandfly species which are the vectors of the disease. This thesis is prepared on the basis of the specimens of the phlebotomine sandflies collected by the author during 1994- 1998 in south western Pakistan, Balochistan. 23 known species and 5 undetermined species (4 form subgenus Phlebotomus & 1 from subgenus Parrotomyia) have been recorded, identified and determined. Taxonomic notes of each species are given. Most of the species are described or redescribed and distribution lists are given.
