Sand flies were collected from houses (indoors) and rodent borrows (outdoors) of the rural district. Among the total of 12997 collected sand flies (2816 from indoors and 10181 from outdoors), 13 species were identified at 4 different altitudes which were Phlebotomus papatasi, P. sergenti, P. caucasicus, P. mongolensis, P. ansari, P. halepensis, P. major, P. longidactus, P. brevis, S. sintoni, S. grekovi, S. sumbarica and S. pawlowskyi. Among them P. papatasi and P. sergenti were the most prevalent species of Phlebotomus in plain and mountain areas respectively. Susceptibility tests carried out with D.D.T 4%, Propoxur 0.1 % and Permethrin 0.25% impregnated paper showed that P. papatasi is susceptible to all these insecticides. LT50 and LT90 values for D.D.T 4% were observed 17' 36" and 37' 12", respectively. Due to the results of this study, the diversity of sand flies in mountain areas was more than plains.
