This booklet contains valuable information on the vectors of Chagas disease present in Guatemala and their morphology, distribution and habitats. It is to be noted that in spite of the varied and rich fauna of the country only two genera of Reduviidae are to be found, and each is represented by a single species, Triatoma dimidiata and Rhodnius prolixus, both proved carriers of American trypanosomiasis and both found naturally infected in Guatemala.
