The word sandfly is a colloquial name given to many kinds of small, flying insects including small flies, mosquitos, gnats, etc. The "noseeum" (no see them) is sometimes called a sandfly. Sandflies are commonly found around beaches.
The "borrachudo" is such a nasty, aggressive, vicious, little SOB that I don't think I would call him a sandfly. No, I'd call a borrachudo a borrachudo.
If you are doing a translation, I'd suggest you call them "mosquitos" or "moscas". They could be either.
