BackgroundEffective malaria control relies on accurate identification of those Anopheles mosquitoes responsible for the transmission of Plasmodium parasites. Anopheles oswaldoi s.l. has been incriminated as a malaria vector in Colombia and some localities in Brazil, but not ubiquitously throughout its Neotropical range. This evidence together with variable morphological characters and genetic differences supports that An. oswaldoi s.l. compromises a species complex. The recent fully integrated… Expand
Molecular taxonomy and evolutionary relationships in the Oswaldoi-Konderi complex (Anophelinae: Anopheles: Nyssorhynchus) from the Brazilian Amazon region
TLDR
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
Identification keys to the Anopheles mosquitoes of South America (Diptera: Culicidae). IV. Adult females
TLDR
An up-to-date key to identify Neotropical Anopheles species using female external morphology and employing traditionally used and new characters is provided. Expand
New Records of Anopheles benarrochi B (Diptera: Culicidae) in Malaria Hotspots in the Amazon Regions of Ecuador and Peru
Abstract The increase in malaria transmission in the Amazon region motivated vector control units of the Ministry of Health of Ecuador and Peru to investigate Anopheles (Diptera: Culicidae) speciesExpand
Evidence of new species for malaria vector Anopheles nuneztovari sensu lato in the Brazilian Amazon region
TLDR
The two markers revealed three genetic lineages for A. nuneztovaris, which may represent a new species, distinct from the A. goeldii group, and may be the most ancestral in the Brazilian Amazon. Expand
Geometric morphometrics for the taxonomy of 11 species of Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) mosquitoes
TLDR
Wing shape was able to separate the closest species of the subgenus Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) from the remaining species, and a combination of 12 landmarks collected not only on the intersections of wing veins, but also on spots gave excellent reclassification scores. Expand
Mosquitoes of eastern Amazonian Ecuador: biodiversity, bionomics and barcodes
TLDR
DNA barcodes proved useful in uncovering and confirming new species and an integrated systematics approach to biodiversity studies in future are advocated and an updated systematic checklist of the mosquitoes of Ecuador is presented for the first time in 60 years. Expand
Spatial distributions of Anopheles species in relation to malaria incidence at 70 localities in the highly endemic Northwest and South Pacific coast regions of Colombia
TLDR
In the highest malaria areas of Colombia, 13 Anopheles species and four new lineages were found, which highlights the need for updating the species distribution. Expand
Exploring malaria vector diversity on the Amazon Frontier
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Anophelinae mosquito diversity continues to be underestimated in poorly sampled areas where frontier malaria is a major public health concern and the findings will help shape future studies of vector incrimination and transmission dynamics in these areas. Expand
Presence of Aedes (Stegomyia) aegypti (Linnaeus, 1762) and its natural infection with dengue virus at unrecorded heights in Colombia.
TLDR
These findings are significant as they identify regions in Colombia at risk of potential autochthonous transmission of dengue and other arboviruses by A. aegypti. Expand
Mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) From the Northwestern Brazilian Amazon: Padauari River
TLDR
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). Expand

DNA barcoding reveals both known and novel taxa in the Albitarsis Group (Anopheles: Nyssorhynchus) of Neotropical malaria vectors
TLDR
DNA barcoding provides a reliable means of identifying both known and undiscovered biodiversity within the closely related taxa of the Albitarsis Group and is advocated in future studies to elucidate the vector competence and respective distributions of all eight species. Expand
Isozyme Similarity in Anopheles oswaldoi Sensu Lato (Diptera: Culicidae) from the Amazon Region, Brazil
TLDR
Isozyme electrophoresis studies were conduced on Anopheles oswaldoi sensu lato from three states in Amazonian (Brazil), including Acre, where this taxon has been incriminated as a potential human malaria vector, and results do not suggest differences between these species, particularly in areas of sympatry.
