As in the case of Lutzomyia cruciata   , Ps. shannoni   has been present in sites where human cutaneous leishmaniasis has been detected in Mexico, and Sánchez-García et al. (2010) found it naturally infected with Leishmania mexicana   in Quintana Roo. Ibáñez-Bernal (2002) recorded this species in Veracruz, specifically from San Pedro Mezcalapa (Municipality of Minatitlán), Cosoleacaque (Municipality of Cosoleacaque), and from Nigromante (Municipality of Playa Vicente). Later, Ibáñez-Bernal et al. (2006) found this species in El Zapotal (Municipality of Colipa), and El Tacahuite (Municipality of Juchique de Ferrer). Additionally, Godinez-Alvarez and Ibáñez-Bernal (2010) reported it for El Limón and Emiliano Zapata (Municipality of Ixhuatlán del Sureste), El Zapotal (Municipality of Minatitlán) and Las Limas (Municipality of Cotaxtla). The following are new municipality records.
