Abstract: 
Pintomyia fischeri adults collected in different eco-epidemiological studies in the northeastern of Argentina
were found parasitized by juvenile nematodes (Tylenchida) isolated from the body cavity. The percentage of
infected females and males was 3.8% and 2.9% respectively. Part of the life cycle of sand flies and tylenchid
nematodes take place in humid and dark sites, where infection of immature stage of Phlebotominae insects is
possible. Biology of this parasite could help to determine the breeding sites of sand flies. This study constituted the first report of tylenchid nematodes infecting sand flies at field conditions in South-America.
