Distribution. USA, MEXICO (Campeche, Chiapas, Guerrero, Hidalgo, Jalisco, Morelos, Nayarit, Nuevo León, Oaxaca, Puebla, Quintana Roo, San Luis Potosí, Tabasco, Tamaulipas, Veracruz, Yucatán), BELIZE, GUATEMALA, HONDURAS, EL SALVADOR, NICARAGUA, COSTA RICA, PANAMA (Young & Duncan 1994; Ibáñez-Bernal 1999).

Remarks. Lutzomyia cruciata   has been reported biting a great number of vertebrate hosts including humans, and collected nearly in all parts of Mexico where human cutaneous leishmaniasis cases have been recorded ( González et al. 2011). Pech-May et al. (2010) and Sánchez-García et al. (2010) reported natural infection with Leishmania mexicana   in the Mexican states of Campeche and Quintana Roo, respectively. There are also records of infection with Wolbachia ( Mikery-Pacheco et al. 2012)   . With the exception of Psathyromyia shannoni (Dyar)   , this species is the most widely distributed sand fly species in Mexico ( Pérez et al. 2014). Specimens of Lu. cruciata   exhibit minor morphological differences throughout the species’ range ( Méndez-Pérez & Rebollar-Téllez 2012), and Pech-May et al. (2013) found high genetic variability with at least three linages. This morphospecies was the third most abundant in our collections.
