Description of a new palearctic species from Cyprus: Phlebotomus (Transphlebotomus)
economidesi. The deposited holotype is a female because of the particularity of the
streaked spermathecae and its non dilated ducts. Four to six spines are implanted
on the style of the male, but its differential diagnosis with the closely related
species P. mascittii and P. canaaniticus is difficult. The distributions of these
Transphlebotomus species are mentioned.
