Hybridization of Anopheles minimus and Anopheles aconitus (Diptera: Culicidae) in Thailand



Hybridization of Anopheles minimus and Anopheles aconitus (Diptera: Culicidae) in Thailand



Journal of Medical Entomology 19(3): 290-292



A. (Cellia) minimus and A. (Cellia) aconitus were successfully hybridized in the laboratory. Both are vectors of malaria in Thailand and were obtained from the same area in Kao Mai Kaew, Chon Buri Province, central Thailand. In the cross between A. aconitus females and A. minimus males, the same number of eggs was obtained as in the parent species but with low hatchability and viability. Only one 4th-instar larva, which resembled A. aconitus, was obtained. The cross between A. minimus females and A. aconitus males produced similar results but gave a higher hatchability. The 4th-instar larvae and the adult of this F1 hybrid showed characteristics intermediate between those of A. minimus and A. aconitus.
