Abstract

For differential identification of sibling species in the Anopheles gambiae Giles complex (Diptera: Culicidae), including simultaneous separation of M and S molecular forms within An. gambiae Giles sensu stricto, we describe a PCR-RFLP method. This procedure is more efficient, faster and cheaper than those used before, so is recommended for large-scale processing of field-collected larval and adult specimens to be identified in malaria vector studies.
