Sandflies and Disease in Cyprus; 1944 – 1985
The only previous sandfly survey of Cyprus was that of Adler (1946), in which about 2 000 sandflies were collected, from all parts of the island, in the period 10 August – 9 September, 1944. This report mainly deals with a partial re-survey of the island 41 years later, from 26 June – 26 July, 1985.
