Our findings support an emerging view with a possible role of proboscis as important equipment during host-seeking, and give us an insight into how these appendages likely evolved from a common origin in order to function as antenna organs.

Mitochondrial DNA variation in the malaria vector Anopheles minimus across China, Thailand and Vietnam: evolutionary hypothesis, population structure and population history

We compare alternative hypotheses concerning the origin of this pattern. The observed data deviate from the expectations based on a single-panmictic population with or without growth, or a stable but spatially structured population.

To test the paraphyletic hypothesis and examine the utility of the Folmer region, genealogical trees based on a concatenated (white + 3' COI sequences) dataset and pairwise differentiation of COI fragments were examined.

Centers for Disease Control Light Traps for Monitoring Anopheles arabiensis Human Biting Rates in an Area with Low Vector Density and High Insecticide-Treated Bed Net Use

Christen M. Fornadel, Laura C. Norris, AND Douglas E. Norris
Reference: 
Am J Trop Med Hyg, Oct 2010; 83: 838 - 842.

Our results suggest that in regions where use of vector control interventions is high and vector densities are low, CDC light traps can be used to monitor An. arabiensis HBRs.

Open Access | Review: Major effect genes or loose confederations? The development of insecticide resistance in the malaria vector Anopheles gambiae

Brooke BD, Koekemoer LL
Reference:

Insecticide resistance is a common occurrence and has been intensively studied in the major malaria vector Anopheles gambiae, providing a useful model for examining how insecticide resistance develops and what pleiotropic effects are likely to emerge as a consequence of resistance.

Open Access | Cuticle thickening associated with pyrethroid resistance in the major malaria vector Anopheles funestus

Wood or, Hanrahan S, Coetzee M, Koekemoer LL, Brooke BD
Reference: 
Parasites & Vectors 2010, 3:67 (4 August 2010)

Measures of mean cuticle thickness in laboratory samples of female An. funestus were obtained using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). These females were drawn from a laboratory colony carrying the pyrethroid resistance phenotype at a stable rate, but not fixed.
