Colony origin - Although initially the colony was recorded as originating from Carmen de Bolívar, Bolívar Department, the isozyme comparisons indicated a closer relationship to the Cimitarra population.
When the archival collecting records were reviewed, we found that in March 1992 sand flies were collected in two forests - one near Puerto Boyacá;, Boyacá; Department, and the other near Carmen de Bolívar, Bolívar Department.
Since San Miguel forest in Cimitarra is closer to Los Corales forest in Puerto Boyacá; (70 km) than Carmen the Bolívar (480 km), the laboratory colony may have been derived from Los Corales, Puerto Boyacá; instead of Carmen de Bolívar.
