          New investigations using ovitraps showed its presence the Aedes albopictus (Skuse, 1894) in four neighborhoods in the metropolitan region of Macapa, capital of Amapa, Brazil. An Aedes aegypti (Linnaeus, 1762) Infestation Index Rapid Survey (LIRAa) held in January 2020 indicated the presence of Ae. albopictus in 10 different neighborhoods, demonstrating increase dispersion in the municipality. Monitoring the distribution of Ae. albopictus is necessary due to related arboviruses transmission, such as Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya. Therefore, this research is relevant to public health in Brazil.
