(De Geer) (Hemiptera, Triatominae) was the first Triatominae species formally described, as De Geer, 1773. This insect presents anthropogenic habits (Galvão 2014) and is considered of global epidemiological importance, since it has a pantropical distribution and was found infected with the protozoan (Chagas, 1909) (Sherlock & Serafim 1974; Brazil & Silva 1983), the etiological agent of Chagas disease.
