Mosquitoes of the Anopheles maculipennis group (Diptera: Culicidae) in Romania, with the discovery and formal recognition of a new species based on molecular and morphological evidence.
It seems likely that A. daciae is more widespread in eastern Europe and the Balkan States, and could be responsible for malaria transmission in these regions that is currently attributed to A. messeae. Expand
Distribution and ecology of mosquitoes in a focus of dirofilariasis in northwestern Iran, with the first finding of filarial larvae in naturally infected local mosquitoes
A study of the distribution and ecology of mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) in Ardebil Province of northwestern Iran, with special reference to the known dirofilariasis focus in Meshkinshahr County,Expand
DNA barcoding reveals both known and novel taxa in the Albitarsis Group (Anopheles: Nyssorhynchus) of Neotropical malaria vectors
DNA barcoding provides a reliable means of identifying both known and undiscovered biodiversity within the closely related taxa of the Albitarsis Group and is advocated in future studies to elucidate the vector competence and respective distributions of all eight species. Expand
Making Mosquito Taxonomy Useful: A Stable Classification of Tribe Aedini that Balances Utility with Current Knowledge of Evolutionary Relationships
The tribe Aedini (Family Culicidae) contains approximately one-quarter of the known species of mosquitoes, including vectors of deadly or debilitating disease agents. This tribe contains the genusExpand
Phylogenetic analysis of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit I gene of five species of the Culicoides imicola species complex
Phylogenetic trees constructed using neighbour‐ joining, parsimony and maximum likelihood showed each species to be distinct and Combinations of sites for two restriction enzymes in the COI sequences were species‐specific and could form the basis of a diagnostic PCR assay. Expand
Molecular differentiation of Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) benarrochi and An. (N.) oswaldoi from southern Colombia.
This polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) assay provides rapid, accurate, and inexpensive species diagnosis of adult females and comprises a complex of at least two species across Latin America. Expand
Malaria Vector Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) nuneztovari Comprises One Genetic Species in Colombia Based on Homogeneity of Nuclear ITS2 rDNA
Abstract Previous studies indicated that two distinct chromosomal forms of Anopheles nuneztovari Gabaldón, cytotypes B and C, occurred on the west and east of the Latin American Andes Mountains,Expand
Occurrence and host preferences of Anopheles maculipennis group mosquitoes in England and Wales
Mosquitoes of the Anopheles maculipennis Meigen (Diptera: Culicidae) group are of public health concern: five of the 11 morphologically indistinct species have been historically considered as vectorsExpand
Incrimination of Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) rangeli and An. (Nys.) oswaldoi as natural vectors of Plasmodium vivax in Southern Colombia.
Malaria transmission in the Southern Colombian state of Putumayo continues despite the absence of traditional vector species, except for the presence of Anopheles darlingi near the southeasternExpand
Comparative phylogeography reveals a shared impact of pleistocene environmental change in shaping genetic diversity within nine Anopheles mosquito species across the Indo‐Burma biodiversity hotspot
A large‐scale comparative approach is taken, combining data from nine forest‐associated Anopheles mosquito species and using statistical phylogeographical methods to disentangle the effects of environmental history, species‐specific ecology and random coalescent effects on genetic diversity. Expand
