(A) Composition of the bacterial phyla found in Lutzomyia genus and Phlebotomus genus sand flies. Pie charts show the proportion of each of the five phyla detected namely Proteobacteria, Firmicutes, Actinobacteria, Bacteroidetes and Chloroflexi. (B) Relative proportion of Proteobacterial classes observed in Lutzomyia and Phlebotomus genera sand flies, respectively on the left and relative proportion of Firmicutes bacterial classes found in Lutzomyia and Phlebotomus genera respectively on the right. (C) Relative proportion of the major families of bacteria in the gammaproteobacterial class: “Enterobacteriales” order (Enterobacteriaceae), the Pseudomonadales order (Moraxellaceae and Pseudomonadaceae), the Xanthomonadales order (Xanthomonadaceae) and the Legionellales order (Coxiellaceae) in Lutzomyia (right panel) and Phlebotomus (left panel).
