Abstract

Abstract.

Chagas disease is caused by the protozoan . This disease is distributed in 21 Latin American countries, where it is mostly vector-borne. In Brazil, there are 68 triatomine species. To date, the epidemiological surveys indicate that the state of São Paulo presents 11 species of triatomines, and most of these species have already been collected in a home environment and found to be infected with . Problems in correctly identifying species can lead to incorrect panorama of distribution of Chagas disease vectors. Thus, we developed an identification key for the triatomines of the state of São Paulo, based on cytogenetic data. With the exception of that does not present cytogenetic data available in the literature, all species were differentiated by cytogenetic characteristics. We emphasize the importance of using this key as a simple and objective tool in the entoepidemiological surveys conducted by the vector control programs.
