Abstract

Abstract.

Sylvatic populations of might be involved in the recolonization of human dwellings. We report here the discoveries of new sylvatic foci in the Bolivian Chaco. Eighty-one triatomines were caught, 38 of which were identified as . and were the other species collected. One and one were infected with TcI; one was infected with TcII. These discoveries add to the debate on the geographic distribution of sylvatic populations, the geographic origin of the species, and the epidemiological role of these populations.
