Some common Queensland Mosquitoes as intermediate Hosts of Wuchereria bancrofti (Filaria bancrofti)



Some common Queensland Mosquitoes as intermediate Hosts of Wuchereria bancrofti (Filaria bancrofti)



Parasitology, Cambridge 23(4): 415-427. f



From experiments in which mosquitos were fed on the blood of man infected with Filaria (Wuchereria) bancrofti in North Queensland, it is concluded that Anopheles amictus, Edw., is a favourable intermediate host of the parasite, comparable but not quite equal to Culex fatigans, Wied. Aedes vigilax, Skuse, is not a favourable host, and Culex sitiens, Wied., is even less so, although infective larvae develop in some individuals.
