Seasonal incidence and diel oviposition periodicity of Haemagogus mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) in Trinidad, W.I. Part III. Haemagogus celeste (Dyar and Nunez Tovar) and Haemagogus leucocelaenus (Dyar and Shannon)



Seasonal incidence and diel oviposition periodicity of Haemagogus mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) in Trinidad, W.I. Part III. Haemagogus celeste (Dyar and Nunez Tovar) and Haemagogus leucocelaenus (Dyar and Shannon)



Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology 85(5): 543-550



The seasonal incidence and diel oviposition patterns of sylvan Haemagogus celeste and Hgleucocelaenus in the Pt. Gourde Forest, Trinidad, were monitored weekly for 53 consecutive weeks using conventional ovitraps. During the dry season peak oviposition by Hg. celeste occurred between 10.00 and 12.00 hours, and that by Hg. leucocelaenus between 12.00 and 14.00 hours;during the wet season peak oviposition by both species occurred between 12.00 and 14.00 hours. Diurnal patterns of oviposition were observed for both species during the wet and dry seasons. The number of ovipositions and of eggs laid during the wet season were, for both species, significantly higher (P > 0.001) than those observed during the dry season.
