Abstract

This preliminary report provides information concerning genetic variation in the vector mosquito Anopheles pseudopunctipennis sensu lato that could have malaria control implications. Because of inconsistencies in malaria transmission patterns within geographic zones inhabited by this vector, the possibility that it represents a species complex was investigated. Hybrid crossing studies, electrophoretic analysis of enzyme variation, and DNA restriction studies were carried out in mosquitoes captured in nine areas of Mexico, Bolivia, and Peru. The findings demonstrated the existence of a species complex believed to have resulted from allopatric speciation. This research points to a need for establishing the geographic distribution of the newly recognized species because of their potential influence on malaria control.
