New records of Culex ( Culex ) pipiens Linn . from Manipur India

  title={New records of Culex ( Culex ) pipiens Linn . from Manipur India},
  author={Bhubaneshwari Devi Moirangthem and Dhananjoy Chingangbam Singh},
The studies on diversity of the mosquito is very urgent as they are quickly adapting to the changing environment and becoming deadlier than before. The diversity studies of mosquitos from Manipur is very scanty, but their impacts on the inhabitants are enormous. For preparing a shield against them a precise identification of each species is a much. For this purpose, larvae from domestic sewage drains and common water canals were procured/caught and reared in the laboratory till adults emerged…

It was found that the average ratio in a collection of pipiens is usually 0.1 or less and in quinquefasciatus 0.6 or more, and there seems little doubt but that the forms do hybridize in nature.


The taxonomy and identification of the species are reviewed in light of current knowledge of the subgenus Culex in the New World and the male genitalia and parts of the fourth-instar larva are illustrated.
