Abstract

Crossbreeding and chromosomal evidence are presented for the existence of a fifth sibling species within the taxon of Anopheles dims in Thailand. The new species is morphologically identifiable as Anopheles balabacensis “Fraser’s Hill form.” Structural differences in mitotic chromosomes and extensive asynapsis in hybrid polytene chromosomes indicate that… (More)
