A total of 6 species of the Pyretophorus (4 species) and Neomyzomyia (2 species) series of the subgenus Cellia of Anopheles were used for metaphase karyotype analysis. Anopheles subpictus and An. vagus exhibit 4 and 2 forms of mitotic karyotypes, respectively, which are attributable to different types of Y chromosomes. Such distinctive mitotic chromosomes may reflect interspecies differences within each of these 2 taxa. Two distinct species, An. indefinitus and An. sundaicus, show similar… CONTINUE READING
