Taxonomic Morphology of Sergentomyia (Sergentomyia) theodori pashtunica Artemiev (1974) (Diptera, Psychodidae) from Pakistan

Juma-Khan Kakarsulemankhel

During entomological surveys conducted in the whole of Balochistan Province Sergentomyia (Sergentomyia) theodori pashtunica Artemiev (1974) was collected (N=158) from 13 localities. These localities appear to be the new record of this species in the literature to date. Taxonomic morphology previously not described by earlier workers are also described, measured and illustrated in the present study. Results of Balochistan specimens are compared with the published data available in the existing literature from other territories. Differential diagnosis of this species is also given.
