Amazonian malaria vector anopheline relationships interpreted from ITS2 rDNA sequences
Rdosomal DNA sequences of the second internal transcribed spacer (ITS2) from samples of 16 species of Anopheles captured in the Amazon Basin, Brazil proved to be a useful tool for species identification and, potentially, to solve taxonomic problems. Expand
Natural Plasmodium Infections in Anopheles darlingi and Anopheles benarrochi (Diptera: Culicidae) from Eastern Peru
Analysis of Anopheles species collected from 11 provinces within four departments in eastern Peru during 2001 and 2002 for infections with P. falciparum and P. vivax suggests An. Expand
Sequence analysis of the second internal transcribed spacer of ribosomal DNA in Anopheles oswaldoi (Diptera: Culicidae).
Analysis of sequence divergence in the second internal transcribed spacer of ribosomal DNA provided evidence that An. Expand
Anopheline species complexes in Brazil. Current knowledge of those related to malaria transmission.
A summary of the problems related to the systematics of primary and secondary Brazilian anophelines vectors of malaria is presented.
Geographical distribution of Anopheles darlingi in the Amazon Basin region of Peru.
Anopheles darlingi was collected from 48.8% of sites, indicating that this species is established throughout central Loreto, including further west in the Amazon Basin than previously reported, and may be found in areas of the Amazon basin where it has not been previously reported. Expand
Comparative susceptibility of two members of the Anopheles oswaldoi complex, An. oswaldoi and An. konderi, to infection by Plasmodium vivax.
We compared the susceptibility of Anopheles oswaldoi and An. konderi to infection by Plasmodium vivax based on the proportion of mosquitoes presenting oocysts and sporozoites. Anophelines wereExpand
Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) konderi Galvao and Damasceno: Neotype Designation and Resurrection from Synonymy with Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) oswaldoi (Peryassu) (Diptera: Culicidae)
Abstract : Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) konderi Galvfio and Damasceno 1942 is redescribed with illustrations of the male and female genitalia and the larval and pupal stages. A neotype for An. konderiExpand
Detection of Rickettsia parkeri from within Piura, Peru, and the first reported presence of Candidatus Rickettsia andeanae in the tick Rhipicephalus sanguineus.
Findings expand the geographic range of R. parkeri to include Peru as well as expand the natural arthropod vector of Candidatus R. andeanae to include Rhipicephalus sanguineus. Expand
Systematics of the Oswaldoi Complex (Anopheles, Nyssorhynchus) in South America
Evidence is shown to support the separate species status of An. Expand
Establishment of a free-mating, long-standing and highly productive laboratory colony of Anopheles darlingi from the Peruvian Amazon
This constitutes the first report of a free-mating, highly productive, and long-standing An. Expand
