Abstract.  The invasive oriental mosquito Aedes (Stegomyia) albopictus (Skuse) (Diptera: Culicidae) was detected on Bioko Island for the first time in November 2001. It was found to be well established breeding in artificial containers at Planta, near Malabo, the capital of Equatorial Guinea. Associated species of mosquito larvae were Aedes aegypti (L.), Ae. africanus (Theobald), Culex near decens Theobald, Cx. duttoni Theobald, Cx. quinquefasciatus Say, Cx. tigripes De Grandpré & De Charmoy… Expand

Abstract.  The mosquito Aedes (Stegomyia) albopictus (Skuse) (Diptera: Culicidae), originally indigenous to South‐east Asia, islands of the Western Pacific and Indian Ocean, has spread during recentExpand
Temporal Patterns of Abundance of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae) and Mitochondrial DNA Analysis of Ae. albopictus in the Central African Republic
TLDR
A comparative study early and late in the wet season in the capital and the main cities of CAR to document infestation and the ecological preferences of the two species, and Mitochondrial DNA analysis revealed broad low genetic diversity, confirming recent introduction of Ae. Expand
Genetic variation in East-Adriatic populations of the Asian tiger mosquito, Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae), inferred from NADH5 and COI sequence variability
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses of ND5 and COI haplotypes in Croatian populations and other A. albopictus populations retrieved from the GenBank revealed two well supported clades where the unique Croatian ND5 hap- lotype clustered with the majority of haplotypes originating from South-Asia, America, Europe, and Africa.

First finding of Dirofilaria repens in a natural population of Aedes albopictus
Abstract.  The invasive mosquito Aedes albopictus (Skuse) (Diptera: Culicidae) has become widespread in Italy during the past decade. Also Italy has foci of canine filariasis caused by DirofilariaExpand
Geographic Distribution and Breeding Site Preference of Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) in Cameroon, Central Africa
Presence in Cameroon of the recently introduced Aedes (Stegomyia) albopictus (Skuse) in association with the indigenous Aedes aegypti (L.) raises public heath concerns because it might alter the riskExpand

Invasion of Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae) into central Africa: what consequences for emerging diseases?
Aedes albopictus, a mosquito native to Asia, has invaded all five continents during the past three decades. It was reported in central Africa in the 2000s, first in Cameroon, and, since then, hasExpand
Phylogeography of Aedes (Stegomyia) aegypti (L.) and Aedes (Stegomyia) albopictus (Skuse) (Diptera: Culicidae) based on mitochondrial DNA variations.
TLDR
Most populations of A. aegypti from South America were found to be genetically similar to populations from South-East Asia, except for one sample from Boa Vista (northern Amazonia), which was more closely related to samples from Africa, which suggests that African populations of a. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that the two species are exhibiting the effect of competitive displacement, with A. aegypti being favoured in urban premises and A. albopictus in the outdoor environment of suburban and rural areas, while in small urban gardens there is a state of equilibrium in which the densities of the two populations are about equal.
