Louren?o-de-Oliveira, Ricardo;Deane, Leonidas M.;
Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz , 1984, DOI: 10.1590/S0074-02761984000400019
Abstract: we regard anopheles (nyssorhynchus) allpha (lutz & peryassú, 1921) as a nomen nudum in view of the ambiguities in its original description, as explained in this note.

Abstract: changes in the expression of genes were observed during development in populations of anopheles (anopheles) intermedius and anopheles (anopheles) mattogrossensis. esterase showed seven zones of activity: est1 was present in all developmental stages of both species; est2 was observed only in larvae of a. intermedius and larvae and pupae of a. mattogrossensis, with greater activity in pupae; est3 and est5 were present in all developmental stages, with greater intensity in larvae; est4 and est6 showed weak activity in larvae of a. mattogrossensis and was not found in a. intermedius. leucine aminopeptidase showed four zones of activity, of which lap1 and lap2 were found in all stages of a. intermedius, with highest activity in larvae, and in larvae only of a. mattogrossensis. lap3 was detected in all stages of a. mattogrossensis and in larvae only of a. intermedius. lap4 was detected only in larvae and pupae of a. mattogrossensis, with greater intensity in pupae. a-glycerophosphate dehydrogenase showed a single zone of activity, detected in older fourth-instar larvae and becoming more intense from the pupal stage onwards.

Esterase showed seven zones of activity: EST1 was present in all developmental stages of both species; EST2 was observed only in larvae of A. intermedius and larvae and pupae of A. mattogrossensis, with greater activity in pupae; EST3 and EST5 were present in all developmental stages, with greater intensity in larvae; EST4 and EST6 showed weak activity in larvae of A. mattogrossensis and was not found in A. intermedius. Leucine aminopeptidase showed four zones of activity, of which LAP1 and LAP2 were found in all stages of A. intermedius, with highest activity in larvae, and in larvae only of A. mattogrossensis. LAP3 was detected in all stages of A. mattogrossensis and in larvae only of A. intermedius. LAP4 was detected only in larvae and pupae of A. mattogrossensis, with greater intensity in pupae. alpha-Glycerophosphate dehydrogenase showed a single zone of activity, detected in older fourth-instar larvae and becoming more intense from the pupal stage onwards.
Variability and genetic differentiation among Anopheles (Ano.) intermedius Chagas, 1908 and Anopheles (Ano.) mattogrossensis Lutz & Neiva, 1911 (Diptera: Culicidae) from the Brazilian Amazon

Abstract: anopheles (anopheles) intermedius and anopheles (ano.) mattogrossensis are brazilian anopheline species belonging to the scarcely studied anopheles subgenus. few studies have been done on the genetic differentiation of these species. both species have been found infected by plasmodium and are sympatric with other anopheline species from the nyssorhynchus subgenus. eighteen enzymatic loci were analyzed in larval specimens of an. intermedius and an. mattogrossensis aiming to estimate the variability and genetic differentiation between these species. an. mattogrossensis population showed higher genetic variability (p = 44.4 and ho = 0.081 ± 0.031) than that of an. intermedius (p = 33.3 and ho = 0.048 ± 0.021). most analyzed loci showed genotypic frequencies according to hardy-weinberg equilibrium, except for lap1 and lap2 in an. intermedius, and est1 and pgm loci in an. mattogrossensis. the genetic distance between these species (d = 0.683) was consistent with the inter-specific values reported for anopheles subgenus. we verified that the polymorphism and heterozygosity percentile values found in both species and compared to those in the literature, showed no relation between the level of isozyme variability and geographical distribution. the low variability found in these two species is probably more related to the niche they occupy than to their geographic distribution.
Occurrence of Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) rangeli (Gabaldon et al) and Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) evansae (Brethes) (Diptera: Culicidae) in an Eutrophized Dam

Abstract: this is the first record of immature stages of species belonging to the subgenus nyssorhynchus (blanchard) in eutrophized breeding habitats. larvae of anopheles (nys.) evansae (brethes), anopheles (nyssorhynchus) rangeli (gabaldon et al), culex nigripalpus (theobald) and culex quinquefasciatus (say) (diptera: culicidae) were collected in a rural eutrophized dam in rio de janeiro state, in southeastern brazil. eutrophication was substantiated by the low diversity of mosquitoes, the high incidence of cx. quinquefasciatus (42%) and of daphinia sp. and, the high levels of both organic nitrogen (0.28 mg/l) and total phosphorus (0.02 mg/l).

Abstract: revision of the leucosphyrus group of anopheles (cellia) (diptera, culicidae). this is a comprehensive revision of 20 species of the leucosphyrus group of the neomyzomyia series of anopheles (cellia). morphological description of the adults, male and female, male genitalia, pupa and fourth-instar larva are provided for each taxon in addition to bionomics, distribution data and systematic discussion for each species, including diagnostic characters. identification keys for females and fourth-instar larvae are provided. when possible medical importance of each species is included. illustrations of of the adults, fourth-instar larvae and pupae are provided. distribution maps for each species are mainly based on the material examined; however, when possible published data were also used. tables on adult character variations, fourth-instar larval and pupal setal branching are included as appendices. a neotype for an. takasagoensis morishita and an. sulawesi koesoemawinangoen, and a lectotype for an. balabacensis baisas, are designated. the authorship of an. sulawesi previously cited as waktoedi is corrected to koesoemawinangoen.

Revista Brasileira de Entomologia , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S0085-56262004000200005
Abstract: egg ultrastructure of two morphologicaly similar species of the arribalzagia series, anopheles (a.) costai fonseca & ramos, 1939 and a. (a.) mediopunctatus (lutz, 1903) are described and illustrated using scanning electron micrographs. although similar in the adult stage, male genitalia structures and larval and pupal stages, the eggs of these species are distinct. the eggs of a. costai and a. mediopunctatus are compared with that of a. forattinii wilkerson & sallum, 1999. incomplete illustration of egg of a. forattinii is provided for comparison.

Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz , 1988, DOI: 10.1590/S0074-02761988000100012
Abstract: the larvicidal properties of 34 plant extracts were tested against aedes fluviatilis (lutz) (diptera: culicidae) larvae, at 100, 10 and 1 ppm concentrations; 26,6% of the extracts enhanced larval mortality (x = 0,05) at 100 ppm (anacardium occidentale, agave americana, allium sativum, coriandrum sativum, nerium oleander, spatodea campanulata, tibouchina serobiculata and vernonia salzmanni). anacardic acid (a. occidentale) was effective at 10 ppm and a. sativum (crude extract) at 1 ppm.
