  title={An updated checklist of mosquitoes (Diptera: Culcidae) of Sudan: Taxonomy, vectorial importance and pictorial keys},
  author={Mostafa M. Mahgoub and Maria Eugenia Colucci and Anna Odone},
Among the two study sites, a total of 5847 mosquito larvae were sampled, of which 44.75% (n= 2617) were Culex (Cx.), belonging to this species Cx. antennatus (42%) Cx. quinquefasciatus (25%) Cx. simpsoni (14%) Cx. tritaeniorhynchus (8%) Cx. theileri (5%) Cx. musarum (4%) and Cx. pipiens (2%)) and 44.46% (n= 2600) Anopheles (An.) belong to six species which were An. arabiensis (38%) An. funestus (27%), An. rufipes (24%), An. phronesis (9%), An. nili (0.5%), and An. dattali (0.5%). However, all… 

Identification of some Fourth Instar Larvae of the Mosquito (Diptera, Culicidae) using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) in Basrah Province, Iraq

There are morphological differences in these micro-structures between the species, Aedes caspius (Pallas, 1771), Culex pipines (Linnaeus, 1758) and Uranotaenia unguiculata Edwards, 1913.



Distribution and seasonal activity of mosquitoes in al Madinah Al Munwwrah, Saudi Arabia.

The population density started to increase in March, with a peak in August, and the activity started to decrease in October, and minimum activity was in January, when temperature was below 5 degrees C.

The mosquitoes (Diptera: Culidae) of Seychelles: taxonomy, ecology, vectorial importance, and identification keys

The knowledge of the culicidian fauna in the Seychelles has been notably updated and the number of mosquito species is relatively large with regards to land surface and distances to continental Africa, although the anophelines are totally lacking.

Natural Infection of Culex theileri (Diptera: Culicidae) with Dirofilaria immitis (Nematoda: Filarioidea) on Madeira Island, Portugal

Field and laboratory studies provide evidence that Cx.

[Biology of the vectors and transmission of Plasmodium falciparum, P. malariae and P. ovale in a village in the savanna of west Africa (Dielmo, Senegal)].

From April 1990 to March 1992 a longitudinal entomological study was carried out in Dielmo village, Senegal, an area of Sudan-type savanna, where anopheles species were identified and a yearly wave of An.

Vector competence of Culex antennatus and Anopheles coustani mosquitoes for Rift Valley fever virus in Madagascar

Results support potential roles for these two mosquito species in the transmission of RVFV and suggest that Cx.

Molecular detection of Wolbachia pipientis in natural populations of mosquito vectors of Dirofilaria immitis from continental Portugal: first detection in Culex theileri

This report is the first report of natural infections by wPip in Cx.

Larvicidal activity of some plant extracts to larvae of the mosquito Culex quinquefasciatus (Say 1823).

Since the latex of the plants tested are hazardous to man and his animals, it is recommended that these extract must be used in bodies of water not accessible to man or animals such as pit latrines and septic tanks.

Anopheles arabiensis: abundance and insecticide resistance in an irrigated area of eastern Sudan.

Anopheles arabiensis is the sole malaria vector in the area and is perennial rather than seasonal, and its susceptibility to insecticides dichloro-diphenyl-trichloroethane (DDT), malathion and fenitrothion was 97.3% and 100% respectively.

Vertical transmission of West Nile virus by Culex and Aedes species mosquitoes.

These data are the first reported evidence of vertical transmission of WN virus by mosquitoes, and therefore warrant further studies to determine whether vertical transmission occurs among WN viral-infected mosquitoes in nature.
