In 2 villages in a non-urban focus of nocturnally periodic Wuchereria bancrofti in Thakurgaon thana, Dinajpur District, Bangladesh, Culex pipiens fatigans was found to be the principal vector. Infective mosquitoes were found during 6 months of the year, correlating with other clinical and climatic criteria for a highly endemic focus. These mosquitoes were never found biting cattle. Larvae of C. p. fatigans were found throughout the year in small polluted domestic water collections.
