Maorigoeldia argyropus Walker is a monotypic mosquito endemic to New Zealand. It has a limited and disjunct distribution the extent of which is unknown. The distribution may be a consequence of extensive anthropogenic environmental change in the 20th century, and in particular the fragmentation of lowland forests and isolation of fragments. We present some evidence that M. argyropus may be slowly disappearing from many sites throughout New Zealand, and that its long-term survival could be at… Expand
Identification of Uranotaenia sapphirina as a specialist of annelids broadens known mosquito host use patterns
TLDR
Evidence that adult females of the mosquito species Uranotaenia sapphirina feed primarily on annelid hosts is reported, the first known example of a mosquito species that specializes on invertebrate blood and suggests that mosquito host use patterns are more diverse than previously recognized.

Association Between Habitat Size, Brushtail Possum Density, and the Mosquito Fauna of Native Forests in the Auckland Region, New Zealand
TLDR
Although there was a trend indicating that possums may have a negative impact on a native species (Culex pervigilans), the impact of these animals on the mosquito fauna remains unclear, the evidence suggests that the conservation of large pristine forest ecosystems in New Zealand could have human health implications.

Anthropogenic Environmental Change, Mosquito-borne Diseases and Human Health in New Zealand
Anthropogenic environmental change is acknowledged as a primary factor in the emergence of diseases. New Zealand’s history since human occupation has been characterized by extensive anthropogenicExpand

Chikungunya virus: a novel and potentially serious threat to New Zealand and the South Pacific islands.
TLDR
The potential threat posed by chikungunya to the region is discussed, focusing in particular on New Zealand, and the need for a South Pacific-wide approach towards mosquito-borne disease prevention is re-emphasized. Expand
Distinctive aquatic assemblages in water‐filled tree holes: a novel component of freshwater biodiversity in New Zealand temperate rainforests
TLDR
Whether water‐filled tree holes in New Zealand’s temperate rainforest are also dominated by habitat generalists that typically utilise ground‐level water bodies, or whether water‐ filled tree holes support habitat‐specialist species is explored. Expand

Autogeny and Oviposition in Arctic Mosquitoes
TLDR
Two species of mosquito, Aedes (Ochlerotatus) impiger (Walk.) and A. (O.) nigripes (Zett.), occur at Lake Hazen, northern Ellesmere Island, where the Canada Department of Agriculture has conducted entomological studies in 1962 and 1963. Expand
Mega-island or micro-continent? New Zealand and its fauna.
TLDR
The terrestrial New Zealand fauna has developed on an ancient landmass of continental origins that has had an increasingly isolated existence since the late Mesozoic, characterized by frequent niche shifts, gigantism, and extended life histories with low reproductive rates. Expand
Review of the systematics and phylogenetic relationships of the Sabethini (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
The results firmly establish the sabethines as a monophyletic group, however, the genera Runchomyia, Tripteroides and Wyeomyia are not demonstrably monophyletsic. Expand
The biology of Toxorhynchites mosquitoes and their potential as biocontrol agents
TLDR
This review draws together the current knowledge of both the taxonomy and the general biology of Toxorhynchites mosquitoes and details previous attempts to use this group as biocontrol agents and in integrated control programmes. Expand
Background and findings of the 1993-94 New Zealand mosquito survey
TLDR
Two long-established exotics, Culex (C.) quinquefasciatus Say, and (especially) Aedes (Finlaya) notoscriptus (Skuse), were found to have recently dispersed southwards from the northern North Island. Expand

Effects of temperature on development, mortality, mating and blood feeding behavior of Culiseta incidens (Diptera: Culicidae).

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of vector ecology : journal of the Society for Vector Ecology
  • 2001
TLDR
The time required for egg melanization and the duration of the egg stage were negatively correlated with temperature, and the proportion of fertile egg rafts was temperature-independent, an inverse relationship existed between temperature and egg hatch. Expand
Physiological aspects of autogeny in Culex tarsalis (Diptera: Culicidae): influences of sugar-feeding, mating, body weight, and wing length.

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of vector ecology : journal of the Society for Vector Ecology
  • 1997
TLDR
Autogenous follicles/female is a more accurate parameter to describe autogeny expression level than autogenous eggs/female because oviposition is affected by other factors, and emergence weight is aMore important factor determining autogenY expression than wing length. Expand
Symposium: Insect Behavioral Ecology--'84: Gonotrophic Interactions in Mosquitoes: Kicking the Blood-Feeding Habit
TLDR
A range of variation in gonotrophic interactions is shaped by certain ecological factors, such as availability of hosts for the adults and food for the larvae. Expand
Nectar-related olfactory and visual attractants for mosquitoes.
TLDR
A summary of current evidence indicates that nectar sources are not as attractive as blood sources at specific times in a mosquito's life but that sugar feeding is usually necessary and more frequent than bloodfeeding. Expand
