Aedes mascarensis MacGregor on Mauritius. I. Ecology in relation to Aedes albopictus(Skuse) (Diptera: Culicidae)



Aedes mascarensis MacGregor on Mauritius. I. Ecology in relation to Aedes albopictus(Skuse) (Diptera: Culicidae)



Journal of Medical Entomology 10(6): 570-577



Aedes mascarensis MacGregor was observed in 6 out of 12 scattered localities on Mauritius that were searched. In two of these it had not been found before. In all areas, Ades albopictus (Skuse) was more common than A. mascarensis. Larvae of the latter were always found together with those of the former, breeding in both tree holes and rock holes. Adults of both species were active during the middle part of the day, but A. mascarensis was less aggressive, slower to commence biting and showed a preference to bite near ground level. It appears that A. mascarensis is distributed where wooded habitats coincide with a generally warmer climatic zone of moderate moisture and drier winters. This species, a potentially useful research tool, does not seem in immediate danger of extinction.
