Both this species and man found infected with same Leishmania sp. in Namibian loci of cutaneous leishmaniasis (Ledger, 1977). This taxon may represent two sandfly species: P. rossi s.s. (Species A) does not occur in loci of cutaneous leishmaniasis, and so Species B is the suspected vector (Davidson, 1987; Killick-Kendrick, 1990).
