Mosquito survey in Tripura.

Author information

Defence Research Laboratory, Tezpur, India.


Vector survey carried out in Tripura revealed the presence of 17 species of anophelines with a density of 92.39 per trap night. Major malaria vector encountered was Anopheles philippinensis which formed 30% of the total collection and is exophagic in nature. Another efficient malaria vector An. minimus which formed 5% of the total collection prevails equally both indoors and outdoors. The high parity rate of An. philippinensis (59%) and An. minimus (63.9%) gives a strong indication about their vectorial status in Tripura.
