In an entomological study, covering three biotopes like village, panikheti (wet rice cultivated land) and urban agglomeration, a total of 35 species of mosquitoes in eight genera were recorded in Jairampur area of Arunachal Pradesh. Two mosquito species--Orthopodomyia anopheloides and Tripteroides indicus were recorded for the first time in Arunachal Pradesh. Anopheles dirus and An. minimus, the two well-known malaria vectors were encountered in the study along with several potential vector species like An. annularis, An. culicifacies, An. maculatus group and An. philippinensis/nivipes. The diversity of mosquito species as well as the man-vector contact was maximum in the panikheti and minimum in the village biotope.
