Immature mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) on the bromeliad Nidularium innocentii in ombrophilous dense forest of Santa Catarina Island, Florianópolis, Santa Catarina State, southern Brazil
Gerson Azulim Müller,Carlos Brisola Marcondes
Biotemas , 2007,
Abstract: Immature forms of mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) were collected from bromeliads Nidularium innocentii var. paxianum in dense ombrophilous forest of Santa Catarina Island, state of Santa Catarina. Two hundred and eleven mosquitoes were collected; 37.44% Culex (Microculex) albipes, 19.91% Cx. (Mic.) davisi, 0.95% Anopheles (Kerteszia) cruzii and 0.47% Wyeomyia (Phoniomyia) tripartita. Correlation between the quantities of collected mosquitoes and mean temperatures was significantly positive, but that between the quantities and the rainfall was not. The quantity of anophelines was much smaller than that reported by other workers in the same region. Even considering the small quantity of anophelines collected, the great density of this bromeliad in the area indicates the need for of attention to it as a breeding ground for these mosquitoes.

Abstract: anopheline and other mosquitoes (diptera: culicidae) in the southern brazilian state of santa catarina have been studied mostly near the atlantic sea coast and are not well known in other regions of the state. collections were made near a reservoir in the western portion of the state. at least 26 species were represented in the collections; 10 are recorded for the first time for the state: coquillettidia venezuelensis, cq. juxtamansonia, mansonia wilsoni, ochlerotatus fluviatilis, psorophora ciliata, ps. discrucians, ps. lanei, culex bigoti, sabethes belisarioi and sa. identicus, and 12 for the first time in the western portion of the state: anopheles albitarsis, an. intermedius, an. lutzi, an. parvus, an. strodei, chagasia fajardi, cx. quinquefasciatus, limatus durhamii, sa. aurescens, sa. melanonymphe, trichoprosopon pallidiventer and wyeomyia limai. the possible medical and veterinary significance of the findings is discussed.

Abstract: mosquitoes (22 species) (0.5%) and runchomyia reversa (5%) biting humans in the morning in florianópolis, state of santa catarina, were significantly more common below than above waist and all wyeomyia incaudata were collected below the waist. short trousers are not recommended, unless using repellents.

Biotemas , 2008,
Abstract: The myrmecofauna in an Atlantic Forest area was studied using various methods for soil ants and bromeliad-nesting ants. Monthly collections were performed between March 2002 and August 2004, using a Winkler extractor, pitfall traps and bromeliad individuals. One hundred and twenty-four species from nine subfamilies and 33 genera were found. The richest genera were Pheidole, Solenopsis, Crematogaster, Acromyrmex and Camponotus. More species were found in soil than in bromeliads, with 8% occurring in both habitats. Twelve species are new records for Santa Catarina State and 19 are new for the greater Florianópolis region. These results correlate with the use of new methodologies for the region, showing that the ant fauna of Santa Catarina Island still needs to be better studied.

Abstract: introduction: the amazon region of brazil is endemic for malaria. in the state of santa catarina, malaria was eliminated in the 1980s. since then, a few sporadic isolated autochthonous cases have occurred. however, because malaria vectors are present within brazilian territory and extensive endemic areas exist in this country, along with the great mobility of people in tourist areas of santa catarina, there is the likelihood of reintroduction of the disease. methods: the following data were used: the database of the entomology group of the national health foundation, santa catarina (acces, 1997-2000); the epidemiological surveillance information system of the health surveillance department (malaria/sc); and the notifiable disease information system (sinan/sc). these data were transferred to and analyzed in the microsoft office excel 2007 software. results: collections were carried out in 48 municipalities and 159 localities, and 12,310 culicids, 11,546 anophelines (93.7%) and 764 others (6.2%) were identified. three subgenera and 13 species of anophelines were identified. conclusions: given that in the municipalities investigated, important vectors such as anopheles cruzii and anopheles albitasis were found to be present, with movements of infected individuals from endemic areas, these areas can be considered to be receptive and vulnerable to malaria. these species are suspected of being responsible for malaria transmission in this region, especially in the municipalities of gaspar, indaial and rodeio.
Culicidae (Diptera) em área de barragem em Santa Catarina e no Rio Grande do Sul

Abstract: the culicidae composition of the barra grande lake situated between the municipalities of esmeralda (rio grande do sul state) and anita garibaldi (santa catarina state) was assessed by monthly samplings. twenty-four species were identified from a total of 1,185 specimens (74.7% as adults and 25.3% as immatures), with aedes fluviatilis lutz as the most frequent species. several species are new records, and some of them are of public health interest. it is suggested that local environmental changes may alter the relationship between humans and vector mosquitoes.
Preliminary evidence of association between species of mosquitoes in Atlantic forest of Santa Catarina State, (Diptera: Culicidae)

Revista da Sociedade Brasileira de Medicina Tropical , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0037-86822005000100019
Abstract: a positive coefficient of association (affinity) between runchomyia reversa and anopheles cruzii and high (0.38) index were observed, probably due to the similar breeding places (bromeliads) and to landing habits. furthermore, a high (0.92) index of association between oc. scapularis and wyeomyia incaudata, with low coefficient of association was observed.
