Many species in this subgenus were first treated as subspecies of P. chinensis and so records are confused. Vector of visceral leishmaniasis, probably L. infantum (Killick-Kendrick, 1990; Leng, 1988). Status of P. chinensis and P. longiductus as vectors of L. infantum is based on habits, distribution, ability to support growth of L. donovani s.l. and experimental transmission by bite (Killick-Kendrick, 1990).
