Figure 1. A) Location of the Alpujarras in southeastern Spain (37º00’–37º20’N and 3º00’–3º30’W). B) Bioclimatic levels (shading) and villages (black dots) where serum samples were collected from dogs to examine for leishmaniasis prevalence and sandflies were collected to estimate densities, April–June 2006. Of 1,675 sandflies captured, 269 were identified by morphologic appearance as Phlebotomus perniciosus (density 0–165 specimens/m2) and 22 as P. ariasi (0 and 11 specimens/m2).
