Abstract TheCulex vishnuisubgroup includes three important vectors of Japanese encephalitis virus,Culex tritaeniorhynchusGiles,Cx. pseudovishnuiColless, andCx. vishnuiTheobald, all of which occur in the Ryukyu Archipelago, Japan. Although these three species have been shown to be vectors of JE virus in many areas of Southeast Asia, it is not yet known what role each plays in the transmission of the virus in this region. Reliable identification of adult, field-collected specimens is a critical… 
Investigation of the Aedes (Stegomyia) flavopictus Complex (Diptera: Culicidae) in Japan by Sequence Analysis of the Internal Transcribed Spacers of Ribosomal DNA
TLDR
Analysis of sequence data by distance and maximum parsimony methods produced phylogenetic trees that showed separation of the specimens into three major clades, corresponding to both subspecies and geographic region, consistent with and support the current classification and geographic distribution of the three subspecies.
DNA barcoding for identi cation of mosquitoes ( Diptera : Culicidae ) from the Ryukyu Archipelago , Japan
e utility of cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) DNA barcoding for the identi cation of 37 mosquito species belonging to the genera Anopheles (6 spp.), Aedes (14 spp.) and Culex (17 spp.) including
Bloodmeal identification and feeding habits of mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) collected at five islands in the Ryukyu Archipelago, Japan.
TLDR
The results indicate that mosquitoes of the same genus show similar host preferences when blood source animals are classified into 5 major groups; mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fishes.
Molecular Marker Con fi rmation for Member of Anopheles barbirostris Van Der Wulp 1884 in Different Localities Tri
Vector and non-vector forms of Anopheles barbirostris have been recognized in Indonesia. However, because of their similarity in morphology, they were considered to be a single species. This
Development and Evaluation of a Species Diagnostic Polymerase Chain Reaction–Restriction Fragment–Length Polymorphism Procedure for Cryptic Members of the Culex sitiens (Diptera: Culicidae) Subgroup in Australia and the Southwest Pacific
TLDR
The development of a polymerase chain reaction–restriction fragment-length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) procedure that reliably separates three species of Culex sitiens is reported, which utilizes the sequence variation in the ribosomal DNA ITS1.
Molecular characterization of Anopheline (Diptera: Culicidae) mosquitoes from eight geographical locations of Sri Lanka
TLDR
The present study reflects the importance and feasibility of COI and ITS2 genetic markers in identifying anophelines and their sibling species, and the significance of integrated systematic approach in mosquito taxonomy.
Ribosomal DNA ITS-1 Intergenic Spacer Polymorphism in Triatomines (Triatominae, Heteroptera)
TLDR
The results corroborate the hypothesis of polyphyletic origin in this group of insects and contribute to knowledge about evolutionary relationships in triatomines.
The detection of Japanese encephalitis virus in Megachiropteran bats in West Kalimantan, Indonesia: A potential enzootic transmission pattern in the absence of pig holdings
TLDR
The first evidence of JE virus detection in several species of Megachiropteran bats in Indonesia was shown, demonstrated the potential role of frugivorous bats in local transmission ofJE in West Kalimantan, and showed more aggressive measures are required in JE risk mitigation.

Development of a species-diagnostic polymerase chain reaction assay for the identification of Culex vectors of St. Louis encephalitis virus based on interspecies sequence variation in ribosomal DNA spacers.
TLDR
A polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay was developed and used together in a single amplification reaction to correctly identify specimens to species using genomic DNA extracted from whole individual mosquitoes, DNA from triturated mosquito pools, or crude DNA from mosquito heads or legs.

TLDR
A PCR-based species- Diagnostic assay for the cryptic species A. hermsi and A. freeborni was developed and it is believed that this general approach to the development of species-diagnostic assays can be extended easily to other complexes of closely related, morphologically indistinguishable species.

Virus isolations from mosquitoes collected during the 1982 Japanese encephalitis epidemic in northern Thailand.
TLDR
From 16 June to 15 August, 1982 CDC light traps were used to collect mosquitoes in the province of Kamphaengphet, N. Thailand, and an antigen capture enzyme immunoassay (EIA) test successfully identified about 50% of the JE virus positive pools, but the method saved considerable processing time.
