Phylogenetic Analysis and DNA-based Species Confirmation in Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus)
It is found that single genes, including the COI barcode region, were poor at confirming species, but that the three genes combined were able to do so much better; this has implications for species identification, species delimitation, and species discovery, and it is cautioned thatsingle genes are not enough.

Insight into Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) (Diptera: Culicidae) Species from Brazil
DNA sequence from the nuclear ribosomal second internal transcribed spacer of individuals identified as An. Expand
Malaria vectors in South America: current and future scenarios
Current distributions of malaria vector species were associated with that of P. falciparum, confirming their role in transmission, especially An. Expand
Phylogeny of Anophelinae using mitochondrial protein coding genes
These findings provided robust evidence for elevating the monophyletic groupings Kerteszia, Lophopodomyia, Nyssorhynchus and Stethomyia to genus level and genus Anopheles to include subgenera Anophele, Baimaia, Cellia and Christya. Expand
Systematic notes on Anopheles Meigen (Diptera: Culicidae) species in the state of Amapá, Brazil.
Identification of Anopheles nuneztovari Gabaldón and An. goeldii Rozeboom and Gabaldón based on the male genitalia traits is discussed. An. goeldii is in the synonymy of An. nuneztovari, however,Expand
Brazilian mosquito (Diptera: Culicidae) fauna: I. Anopheles species from Porto Velho, Rondônia state, western Amazon, Brazil.
The purpose of this study was to diagnose the occurrence of anopheline species from collections in three locations along an electric-power transmission line to discuss Culicidae systematics, fauna distribution, and aspects of malaria in altered habitats of the western Amazon. Expand
Mitochondrial Genomes of Anopheles (Kerteszia) (Diptera: Culicidae) From the Atlantic Forest, Brazil
Abstract Mitochondrial genome sequences are widely used as molecular markers for phylogenetic studies of mosquito species complexes, such as the Anopheles albitarsis complex. Except for a few studiesExpand
Molecular phylogeny of the Myzorhynchella Section of Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) (Diptera: Culicidae): genetic support for recently described and resurrected species.
Bayesian phylogenetic analyses found Anopheles parvus to be the most distantly related species within the Section, a finding that is consistent with morphology. Expand
Redescription of Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) antunesi Galvão & Amaral and description of a new species of the Myzorhynchella Section (Diptera: Culicidae) from Serra da Mantiqueira, Brazil.
The results of the present study suggest that the new species has been misidentified as both An. Expand
Redescription of Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) Lutzii, and Resurrection of Anopheles guarani from Synonymy with An. lutzii (Diptera: Culicidae)
Comparisons of external morphology of specimens from the type locality of Anopheles guarani Shannon demonstrate it is a valid species, and that Anopheels niger Theobald is conspecific with Anophele guarANI stat. Expand
