Man-bait catches of Phlebotomus perniciosus were carried out in a human and canine leishmaniasis focus in Central Italy (Monte Argentario, Grosseto) to evaluate the man-sandfly contact of this vector. P. perniciosus females were collected biting on man outside, during the first hours of the night, when the local people are at risk. The results of these captures are discussed and the man-sandfly contact is considered in relation to the epidemiological aspects of the disease in the area under study.
