Studies on the relationship of various vectors and non-vectors of malaria from the evolutionary point of view are important. Use of molecular methods to define phylogeny helps to understand the interrelationship among the members of the anophelines and elucidate the ambiguity that has arisen from improper classification. It could also help to design molecular markers for species differentiation, particularly in those which pose difficulty when classified, based on morphological features.
