Delayed hatching phenomenon in Haemagogus and Aedes fulvithorax (Lutz) mosquitoes


Annals of Medical Entomology 1993; 1(2): 1-3
Delayed hatching phenomenon in Haemagogus and Aedes fulvithorax (Lutz) mosquitoes
Bamboo pots, used to collect mosquito larvae and brought into the laboratory after being exposed in a tropical rain forest (in Trinidad) for 1 year, were subjected to a series of drying and soakings with water for another year. 3 species of mosquito larvae emerged: H. janthinomys, H. leucocelaenus and A. fulvithorax. Eggs of H. janthinomys remained viable for a period of 31 weeks, H. leucocelaenus for 26 weeks and A. fulvithorax for 5 weeks.
