Abstract

The muscoid fly Dermatobia hominis causes cutaneous myiases in mammals. Females of this species use a vector to carry their eggs to the host. This note describes Anopheles konderi acting as phoretic vector for D. hominis. A female A. konderi carrying D. hominis was collected using light traps in Oriximiná, Pará, Brazil. The A. konderi specimen was identified at morphological and molecular levels. Eight eggs of D. hominis were observed on the Anopheles konderi female. Anopheles konderi, only the third Anopheles species recorded as a phoretic vector, may be a potential vector of D. hominis.
