Lutzomyia shannoni   is widely distributed in America, from Argentina to the United States of America. In Mexico, it is known from the states of Campeche, Guerrero, Nayarit, Oaxaca, Puebla, Quintana Roo, and Veracruz. This species was recorded in the municipalities of Minatitlán, Cosoleacaque, and Playa Vicente ( Ibáñez­Bernal, 2002), all in the southern portion of Veracruz. We collected some specimens in the study area (see material examined). The females of this species are human biters, and flagellates compatible with human isolates were isolated from it in Guatemala ( Rowton et al. 1991). It is also a probable vector of Endotrypanum schaudinni   ( Arias et al. 1985; Rogers et al. 1988).

Material examined. 6 males, 4 females. Mexico, Veracruz: Municipality of Colipa, E l Zapotal, February 14, 2006, Mendoza, Bernabé and Guevara, colls., attracted to human, 3 males, 1 female; refuge between tree roots, 3 males, 3 females.
