          Abstract

          Triatoma jatai sp. nov. is the first new species of triatomine to be described in the state of Tocantins, in the northern region of Brazil. It was caught on rock outcrops in the wild environment and, more recently, invading homes. While T. jatai sp. nov. is morphologically similar to Triatoma costalimai, it is distinguished by its general colouring, differences in the blotches on the connexivum, wing size in females and external structures of the male genitalia. The type series has been deposited in the Entomological Collection and Herman Lent Collection, Oswaldo Cruz Institute-Oswaldo Cruz Foundation, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

          Classification, evolution, and species groups within the Triatominae.

          Classification of the Triatominae has become a complex balance between traditional approaches and a wide variety of evolutionary interpretations. On the one hand is the need for a stable classification of practical use for those involved in vector surveillance and control. On the other is the desire to adequately reflect evolutionary theory derived from a range of molecular, cytogenetic and morphometric comparisons, with additional complications raised by current interpretations of the subfamily as a recently derived polyphyletic assemblage. Here we review key aspects of triatomine systematics and evolution, to derive a pragmatic classification that seeks to build on traditional morphological concepts within the context of current evolutionary theories.
