This image depicts a right lateral view of a mounted female Phlebotomus sp. fly, which due to its resemblance, may be mistaken for a mosquito. Phlebotomus spp. sand flies are blood-sucking insects, which are very small, and sometimes act as the vectors for various diseases including leishmaniasis, and bartonellosis, also known as Carrión’s disease.
