Identification of Anopheles nuneztovari Gabaldón and An. goeldii Rozeboom and Gabaldón based on the male genitalia traits is discussed. An. goeldii is in the synonymy of An. nuneztovari, however, characters of the aedeagus of male genitalia distinguish both species. We hypothesize that An. goeldii may be a valid species, however, further studies using molecular characters, especially ITS2 rDNA sequences will be necessary to elucidate the taxonomic status of the species.

Anopheles goeldii Rozeboom & Gabaldón (Diptera, Culicidae): a species of the Nuneztovari Complex of Anopheles Meigen
Anopheles goeldii is redescribed based on morphological traits of the fourth instar larva, pupa, egg, and male and female. Expand
Intraespecific variation on the aedeagus of Anopheles oswaldoi (Peryassú) (Diptera: Culicidae).
Intraspecific variation of the shape of the apex of the aedeagus of the male genitalia of specimens of Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) oswaldoi s.s. from Vale do Ribeira, Mata Atlântica, Brazil, was observed. Expand
Batkoa apiculata (Thaxter) Humber affecting Anopheles (Diptera: Culicidae) in the municipality of Una, Southern Bahia, Brazil.
Surveys for fungal pathogens affecting adult mosquitoes from the genus Anopheles were conducted in flooded and swamp-like natural breeding sites near residences in the center and suburbs of the city of Una as well as the nearby village of Outeiro in southern Bahia, offering some hope about the possibilities to use fungus-based biocontrol against Anophele species that vector malaria in Brazil.

Morphological identification of species of the Nuneztovari Complex of Anopheles (Diptera: Culicidae) from an area affected by a Brazilian hydroelectric plant.
This study provides a measurement tool that can identify and differentiate species of the Nuneztovari Complex in the region, which can be applied to the otherspecies of the complex as well to other anopheline species; thus, fostering the acquisition of information about the role of each species in malaria transmission.

Resurrection of Anopheles goeldii from synonymy with Anopheles nuneztovari (Diptera, Culicidae) and a new record for Anopheles dunhami in the Brazilian Amazon.
Results of the Bayesian phylogenetic analyses performed using either COI or combined ITS2, COI and white gene sequences suggest that An. Expand
Brazilian mosquito (Diptera: Culicidae) fauna: I. Anopheles species from Porto Velho, Rondônia state, western Amazon, Brazil.
The purpose of this study was to diagnose the occurrence of anopheline species from collections in three locations along an electric-power transmission line to discuss Culicidae systematics, fauna distribution, and aspects of malaria in altered habitats of the western Amazon. Expand
Morphological analysis of three populations of Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) nuneztovari Gabaldón (Diptera: Culicidae) from Colombia.
Based on the results of comparative analyses of 1,039 specimens of several progenies of Anopheles nuneztovarifrom three localities in Colombia, eight costal wing spot patterns were observed and approximately 5% of the adult females were misidentified as a species of Nyssorhynchus, different from An.

Molecular evidence for a single taxon, Anopheles nuneztovari s.l., from two endemic malaria regions in Colombia.
To elucidate the Anopheles nuneztovari s.l. taxonomic status at a microgeographic level in four malaria endemic localities from Antioquia and Córdoba, Colombia, fragments of the cytochrome oxidaseExpand
Molecular taxonomy and evolutionary relationships in the Oswaldoi-Konderi complex (Anophelinae: Anopheles: Nyssorhynchus) from the Brazilian Amazon region
Five very closely related species are confirmed and new records for these species in the Brazilian Amazon region are presented and suggest that An. Expand


Malaria Vector Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) nuneztovari Comprises One Genetic Species in Colombia Based on Homogeneity of Nuclear ITS2 rDNA
Abstract Previous studies indicated that two distinct chromosomal forms of Anopheles nuneztovari Gabaldón, cytotypes B and C, occurred on the west and east of the Latin American Andes Mountains,Expand
Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) konderi Galvao and Damasceno: Neotype Designation and Resurrection from Synonymy with Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) oswaldoi (Peryassu) (Diptera: Culicidae)
Abstract : Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) konderi Galvfio and Damasceno 1942 is redescribed with illustrations of the male and female genitalia and the larval and pupal stages. A neotype for An. konderiExpand
Identification and Location of the Holotype and Paratypes of Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) nuneztovari Gabaldon (Diptera: Culicidae)
Abstract : The type-series of An. (Nys.) nuneztovari Gabaldon has largely been destroyed or misplaced. The holotype is represented by a male genitalia slide, number 349-6, in collections of theExpand

A photomap of larval polytene chromosomes of Anopheles nuneztovari (population B) from western Venezuela is presented and the frequency of polymorphism 2La has increased significantly and inversion 2La does not conform to Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. Expand
Chromosomal differences in populations of Anopheles nuneztovari.
Anopheles nuneztovari from 3 localities in Brazil, 2 in Venezuela, and 1 in Colombia were subjected to chromosome analysis and it was possible to identify specimens from Venezuela and Colombia and 190 from Brazil by the X-chromosome. Expand
A new cytotype of Anopheles nuneztovari from western Venezuela and Colombia.
Cytogenetic analysis of the larval polytene chromosomes of Anopheles nuneztovari from 5 collection sites in Táchira and Zulia states northwest of the Andean Cordillera in western Venezuela and from 2Expand
Cladistic analysis of the mtDNA data using three outgroups suggests that A. nuneztovari is monophyletic, and the Mantel analysis showed no significant correlation between genetic and geographic distances, suggesting that it is biomes and cytotypes that contribute most strongly to subdivision.

Sequence analysis of the ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacer 2 from populations of Anopheles nuneztovari (Diptera: Culicidae).
Sequence variation of the ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) was examined for populations of the malaria vector Anopheles nuneztovari collected in Colombia, Venezuela, Bolivia,Expand
The second internal transcribed spacer of nuclear ribosomal DNA as a tool for Latin American anopheline taxonomy - a critical review.
Overall the ITS2 sequences distinguish anopheline species, however, information on intraspecific and geographic variations is scarce and it is suggested that misidentification and/or sequencing errors could be responsible for some of the high values of divergence. Expand
Intragenomic heterogeneity of a ribosomal DNA spacer (ITS2) varies regionally in the neotropical malaria vector Anopheles nuneztovari (Diptera: Culicidae)
The results indicate that homogenization of ITS2 has proceeded to a greater extent in SO and SI than in the localities in Brazil, and probably reflects either differences in population‐level processes such as gene flow and genetic drift, or the fact that these localities may represent two or more cryptic species.
