Insect-Specific Virus Discovery: Significance for the Arbovirus Community
TLDR
The arbovirus community will benefit from the growing database of knowledge concerning these newly described viral endosymbionts, as their impacts will likely be far reaching. Expand
Insect-specific flaviviruses from Culex mosquitoes in Colorado, with evidence of vertical transmission.
TLDR
Mosquitoes were collected in Colorado during 2006 and 2007 to examine spatial and seasonal patterns of risk for exposure to Culex vectors and West Nile virus, which led to the detection and subsequent isolation of two insect-specific flaviviruses: CuleX flavivirus (CxFV), which was first described from Japan, and a novel insect flaviv virus, designated Calbertado virus (CLBOV, which has also been detected in California and Canada.

ENTOMOLOGICAL STUDIES ALONG THE COLORADO FRONT RANGE DURING A PERIOD OF INTENSE WEST NILE VIRUS ACTIVITY
TLDR
The relationship between spring adult emergence and temperature inside and outside overwintering sites is described and the spatial and temporal distribution of West Nile virus detections are presented. Expand
Mosquito Species Richness, Composition, and Abundance along Habitat-Climate-Elevation Gradients in the Northern Colorado Front Range
TLDR
These findings suggest that future climate warming may lead to shifts in distribution patterns of West Nile virus vectors (e.g., Cx. vexans and C. tarsalis) toward higher elevations in Colorado. Expand
Seasonal Patterns for Entomological Measures of Risk for Exposure to Culex Vectors and West Nile Virus in Relation to Human Disease Cases in Northeastern Colorado
TLDR
Examination of seasonal patterns for entomological measures of risk for exposure to Culex vectors and West Nile virus in relation to human WNV disease cases in a five-county area of northeastern Colorado during 2006–2007 found that abundance of Cx. Expand
Seasonal dynamics of four potential West Nile vector species in north-central Texas.
TLDR
A population survey was conducted from April through September 2002 on mosquito species occurring on the Ray Roberts Greenbelt, a riparian corridor used for public recreation on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River, in Denton County, TX, finding that West Nile virus (WNV) has been detected in these species in the United States, and they may serve as important vector species in DDallas County.

Evidence of Efficient Transovarial Transmission of Culex Flavivirus by Culex pipiens (Diptera: Culicidae)
ABSTRACT This study determined the transovarial transmission (TOT) potential and tissue tropisms of Culex flavivirus (CxFV), an insect-specific flavivirus, in Culex pipiens (L.). Several hundredExpand
The distribution of potential West Nile virus vectors, Culex pipiens pipiens and Culex pipiens quinquefasciatus (Diptera: Culicidae), in Mexico City
TLDR
The identity and spatial distribution of Culex pipiens complex mosquitoes and their hybrids and hybrids in Mexico City are determined to address the potential of WNV being introduced into Mexico City. Expand
Mosquitoes and West Nile Virus Along a River Corridor from Prairie to Montane Habitats in Eastern Colorado
ABSTRACT: We conducted studies on mosquitoes and West Nile virus (WNV) along a riparian corridor following the South Platte River and Big Thompson River in northeastern Colorado and extending from anExpand
