DNA sequences were generated for eight specimens of the Anopheles maculipennis complex from Florina in NW Greece, and identified to species on the basis of comparison with ITS2 sequences for members of the complex already in GenBank. The sequences revealed the presence of An. maculipennis and An. messeae in Florina. Problems with sequence reliability and(More)
Specimens belonging to the Anopheles maculipennis complex were collected as larvae or resting adults from May 2003 to November 2004 in the area of the Athens 2004 Olympic Rowing Centre in Schinias, Attiki, Greece, and identified by morphological and molecular analyses. Of the 201 specimens collected, 199 were found to be Anopheles sacharovi Favre and two(More)
BACKGROUND Passenger ships provide conditions suitable for the survival and growth of pest populations. Arthropods and rodents can gain access directly from the ships' open spaces, can be carried in shiploads, or can be found on humans or animals as ectoparasites. Vectors on board ships may contaminate stored foods, transmit illness on board, or, introduce(More)
The presence of Aedes albopictus (Skuse) was recently confirmed for the first time in northwestern Greece. This location is within the distribution range of a morphologically similar species, Aedes cretinus Edwards, and is a potentially favorable region for the reintroduction of Aedes aegypti (L.). It was thus compelling to use methods in addition to(More)
