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.

Conclusion: Targeting the man-made and temporary larval habitats could results in the effective anopheline mosquitoes larvae control.
It was found relatively highly abundant specie among Anopheline species.
Anopheline systematics has reached its zenith in classical morphology some years ago and is now dominated by molecular genetics research (Harbach 2004).
We observed great seasonal fluctuation in the abundance of anopheline larvae with higher abundance during the autumn and spring seasons and a lower abundance during summer and complete absence during the winter.
Vegetation can also influence the Anopheles population in those environments being an important factor for anopheline population dynamic in eutrophic breeding sites.
Thirteen anopheline species were collected from human dwellings, and 17 were collected from cattle sheds.

mosquitoes were aspirated from the corners of the bedroom of the trailer where the patient slept; however, no anophelines were found by aspiration or by overnight trapping.
More recent comparative studies of aedine karyotypes have revealed evidence of structural changes similar to those in anophelines (Motara and Rai 1978; Munstermann 1981).
Numerous studies demonstrat that ivermectin reduced the daily survival rate of various mosquito species including Anophelines when they feed the drug in blood of man or variety of animals (Pampiglioni et al.
