Abstract Prior to 1965, Singapore was part of the Malaya (now Malaysia) and was usually not mentioned when mosquito records were reported for Malaya. Consequently, many species that occurred in Singapore were not listed in the world mosquito catalog, and the available checklist for Singapore since 1986 is incomplete, with some imprecise species information. In updating this checklist, we examined and verified mosquito specimens collected from Singapore in various depositories, including a… 
Culex vishnui (Diptera: Culicidae): An Overlooked Vector of Arboviruses in South-East Asia.
Being zoo- and anthropophagic, omnipresent in the Oriental region, and presenting strong resistance to many insecticide families, this overlooked mosquito species may pose a serious health risk in one of the most densely populated regions of the world.
Survey study on mosquito (Diptera: Culicidae) in Amant Al-Asimah (Sana’a city)- Yemen
The common mosquito species in Amant Al-Asimah (Sana’a city) – Yemen, during the period from August 2018 to April 2019 was found to be Culisetalongiareolata and Culexpipiens.
Detection of Japanese Encephalitis Virus in Culex Mosquitoes in Singapore
A One Health approach involving surveillance, the collaboration between public health and wildlife managers, and control of mosquito populations remains the key measures in risk mitigation of JEV transmission in the enzootic cycle between birds and mosquitoes.
Prevalence of simian malaria parasites in macaques of Singapore
The study revealed that Singapore’s wild long-tailed macaques are natural hosts of the five simian malaria parasite species, while no malaria was detected in all peridomestic macaques tested, and the risk of Simian malaria transmission to the general human population is concluded to be low.
Wolbachia infection in wild mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae): implications for transmission modes and host-endosymbiont associations in Singapore
The results suggest that the mosquito- Wolbachia relationship is complex and that combinations of transmission modes and multiple evolutionary events likely explain the observed distribution of Wolbachian diversity across mosquito hosts.
Implementation of geographical information systems for the study of diseases caused by vector-borne arboviruses in Southeast Asia: A review based on the publication record.
The results presented should improve opportunities for future studies on the implementation of GIS in the control of mosquito-borne viral diseases in Southeast Asia, and the need to improve decision-support by disease mapping and management is found.


Taxonomic Changes, Revised Occurrence Records and Notes on the Culicidae of Thailand and Neighboring Countries
Abstract : Published mosquito records for Thailand listed in the world mosquito catalog and supplements and in several recently published checklists are reviewed and revised based upon specimens
Contributions to the Mosquito Fauna of Southeast Asia - II. The Genus Culex in Thailand (Diptera: Culicidae)
In this study, 60 species and subspecies belonging to 7 subgenera of the genus Culex are recognized from Thailand and 5 species are described as new and 19 species are recorded for the first time from Thailand.
The genus Culex, subgenus Lophoceraomyia, in Malaya (Diptera: Culicidae).
The studies reported below had their origin in 1956, in the discovery that the mosquito fauna of Singapore included three distinct species that were all identifiable, on existing keys, as Culex
Mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) From the Northwestern Brazilian Amazon: Padauari River
The results represent the most diverse standardized inventory of mosquitoes along the Padauari River, with the identification of 127 species-level taxa distributed in five localities, within two municipalities (Barcelos and Santa Isabel do Rio Negro).
Bionomics of Anopheles latens in Kapit, Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo in relation to the transmission of zoonotic simian malaria parasite Plasmodium knowlesi
Anopheles latens is the main vector for P. knowlesi malaria parasites in the Kapit District of Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo and the relationship between ecology, abundance and bionomics of anopheline fauna is underscores.
Mosquito Fauna of Ubin Island, Singapore
A total of 25 species and 6 unidentified species belonging to 9 genera were identified and recorded from Ubin Island, Singapore, based on specimens collected from 1993 to 2010.
New mosquito species records (Diptera: Culicidae) from Singapore.
Nine species of mosquitoes in eight genera are recorded for the first time in Singapore, an increase in the number of species reported from Singapore to 137.
The Phylogeny and Classification of Anopheles
Anopheles was introduced as a genus of mosquitoes in 1818 by Johann Wilhelm Meigen but little was done on the taxonomy of Anopheles until the discovery during the last two decades of the 19th century that mosquitoes transmit microfilariae and malarial protozoa, which initiated a drive to collect, name and classify these insects.
The Anopheles hyrcanus Group in South-East Asia (Diptera: Culicidae)
This paper is a study of the southeast Asian forms of the Anopheles hyrcanus complex with special reference to those of the Malay Peninsula, and it is to the latter forms that the detailed

The distribution and density of Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus in Singapore were assessed from extensive larval surveys carried out from 1966 to 1968 to evaluate their respective roles in the
