summary

The Triatomines Collection of the Oswaldo Cruz Institute (CTIOC) is one of the oldest of the institution, because it began to be formed in 1909 when the Chagas' disease was discovered. It currently helds more than 9,000 dry-mounted specimens of triatomines and other reduviids, being under the responsibility of the National and International Laboratory of Reference in Taxonomy of Triatomines (LNIRTT). The LNIRTT also keeps an insectary, today with 46 species kept in 150 colonies, which provide live material for researchers working with vectors of the Chagas' disease.
