Description

Rhodnius prolixus.png
  • Rhodnius prolixus is the second most important triatomine vector of the Chagas parasite due to both its sylvatic and domestic populations in northern South America as well as to its exclusively domestic populations in Central America. It has a wide range of ecotopes, mainly savanna and foothills with an altitude of between 500 meters to 1,500 meters above sea level and temperatures of 16 °C to 28 °C. It is a major vector of Chagas disease, an illness caused by Trypanosoma cruzi which affects approximately 7 million people worldwide[1][2].
