Observations on the bionomics of anopheles darlingi diptera culicidae from brazil



Observations on the bionomics of anopheles darlingi diptera culicidae from brazil



Bulletin of Entomological Research 70(4): 685-692



The physiological age-structure of populations of the malaria vector A. darlingi Root, collected biting man, was determined from collections made from March-June 1979 at the end of the rainy season in the village of Aripuana, Mato Grosso, Brazil. The number of biting mosquitoes increased during the transition between the wet and dry seasons, but adult survival remained low at all times. Only 7 of 1596 females dissected laid eggs 4 or more times, thus the proportion of females that could be potentially infective with malaria sporozoites was 0.4%. The mosquitoes rested in the vicinity of the host for periods of up to 10 min before biting. The results are compared to those obtained during a study on A. darlingi on the Manaus-Boa Vista Highway, 1000 km to the north. In this area, peak numbers were collected at the beginning of the rainy season and adult survival was longer than at Aripuana.
