Fly head was separated and placed ventrally to expose the mouth parts (cibarium and pharynx) while the abdominal part was laterally placed on the slide as suggested by Aslamkhan and Aslamkhan (2000), required in taxonomic identification.

Six subgenera of the genus Phlebotomus (Phlebotomus, Paraphlebotomus, Synphlebotomus, Euphlebotomus, Adlerius, Larroussius) and more than 90 species were identified depending on morphological criteria including terminal genitalia of males and internal structures of females, such as spermatheca and cibarium and also pharynx in the head region (Belkaid et al., 2000 ; Lango, 2005; Singh and Philips-Singh, 2010).
