Anopheles

 [ah-nof´ĕ-lēz]
a widely distributed genus of mosquitoes, comprising over 300 species, many of which are important vectors of malaria.

Anopheles

(ă-nof'ĕ-lēz),
A genus of mosquitoes (family Culicidae, subfamily Anophelinae). The sporogenous cycle of the malarial parasite is passed in the body cavity of female mosquitoes of certain species of this genus; several selected vectors (from among more than 90 species) are listed below.

anopheles

(ə-nŏf′ə-lēz′)
n.
Any of various mosquitoes of the genus Anopheles, which can carry the malaria parasite and transmit the disease to humans. Also called anopheles mosquito.

Anopheles,

A genus of mosquito containing a number of species that transmit the malarial parasite from person to person when feeding on blood. Species commonly transmitting malaria include A. gambiae (Africa), A. stephensi (Middle east), A. culicifacies (India), A. maculatus (Far East) and A. punctulatus (Australasia).
