Haementeria lutzi Pinto (Hirudinea: Glossiphoniidae) as a Putative Vector of Trypanosoma evansi (Kinetoplastida: Trypanosomatidae) in the Pantanal Matogrossense

The purpose of this work was to experimentally show that leeches of the species Haementeria lutzi may mechanically transmit Trypanosoma evansi to Rattus norvegicus. We also go through a few behaviours of Trypanosoma evansi in leeches after a blood meal
