This paper presents the preliminary results of a survey of phlebotomine fauna collected in the Amanã Sustainable Development Reserve. This group of insects has public health importance due to the fact that they are vectors of Leishmaniasis. Over three days of collection, 440 specimens of nine species were identified, with two new registrations: one for Brazil and another for the State of Amazonas.
