Females of the vector of Leishmania aerhiopica, Phlebotomus pedifer. have previously been morphologically indistinguishable from the non-vector. P. elegonensis. The present studies have biochemically separated these two species. Differences were observed in the mobility of four enzymes. GPI. HK, leo and PGM on thin.Jayer starch gel electrophoresis. Using the isoelectric focusing technique. the two species could be differentiated by one enzyme. GPI.
