cuticular hydrocarbons of larvae of individual strains of the anopheles gambiae sensu stricto were investigated using gas liquid chromatography. biomedical discriminant analysis involving multivariate statistics suggests that there was clear hydrocarbon difference between the gambian(g3), the nigerian (16css and, its malathion resistant substrain, refma) and the tanzanian (kwa) strains. the high degree of segregation (95%) in hydrocarbons among the four strains investigated indicates that further analysis is needed to enable understanding of hydrocarbon variation in samples of an. gambiae especially from areas where these populations co-exist.
