In the article, ``Population Ecology of Phlebotomus argentipes (Diptera Psychodidae) in West Bengal, India,'' by Kashinath Ghosh, Jaba Mukhopadhyay, Mayur M. Desai, Sugata Senroy, and Amal Bhattacharya, published in the Journal of Medical Entomology, 36(5): 588-594, the first two words in the text should read Phlebotomus argentipes, not Hlebotomus argentipes.
