Trypanosoma cruzi, the etiological agent of Chagas disease is a parasitic protozoan endemic to Latin America. This parasite is highly diverse, with several divergent and discrete major genotypes reported: TcI to TcVI. In this study, we report genetic diversity of T. cruzi circulating in mammals and triatomines 85 samples collected in Cayenne and its surroundings , after amplification of the mini-exon gene. Two distinct groups TcI 55,3 %, TcIII-TcIV 36,5 % and co-infection 8,2 % were defined in 58 triatomines, 13 wild mammals, 12 dogs and 2 human samples.
