Acta Tropica Volume 143, March 2015, Barcoding Turkish Culex mosquitoes to facilitate arbovirus vector incrimination studies reveals hidden diversity and new potential vectors. Open Access Highlights DNA barcoding reveals three new Culex species in Turkey.
The species ‘Cx. Territans’ comprises two species in Turkey. Culex quinquefasciatus is confirmed from Turkey for the first time. A revised faunal list is presented and arboviral vector potential discussed. Abstract As a precursor to planned arboviral vector incrimination studies, an integrated systematics approach was adopted using morphology and DNA barcoding to examine the Culex fauna present in Turkey. Although by morphology only 9 species were recognised, DNA barcoding recovered 13 distinct species including: Cx. Keywords DNA barcoding; Culex; Arbovirus; Vector; New records; Turkey 1. Int. J.

Journal of Parasitology and Vector Biology Vol.6(1) January 2014 Distribution, abundance and diversity of mosquitoes in Akure, Ondo State, Nigeria.
The distribution, abundance and diversity of mosquitoes in Akure, were studied between April, 2012 and March, 2013.
Twenty (20) locations randomly distributed across five geographical zones of the city were sampled using sweep nets, aspirators, dippers and pipettes. The habitats sampled include containers, stagnant pools, domestic run-offs and gutters. The larvae collected were preserved in 70% ethanol and identified to species level using X40 dissecting microscope and morphological keys. 30 species distributed among 5 genera were identified during the study.
The distribution and abundance of the 30 species of mosquitoes varied significantly (p<0.05). Culex andersoni was found to be most abundant in the study area with 23.1% abundance followed by Culex fatigans (21.9%) while Toxorhynchites brevipalpis was the least abundant (0.05%). Key words: Mosquitoes, Culex andersoni, Toxorhychite brevipalpis, abundance. LABSPACES 01/12/12 New insights into mosquitoes' role as involuntary bioterrorists.

Credit: Hillyer Lab / Vanderbilt University For many years scientists thought that mosquitoes provided the disease organisms which they spread with a relatively free ride because the insects didn't have much in the way of natural defenses to fight off these microscopic stowaways. Recent research, however, has revealed that mosquitoes have surprisingly sophisticated immune systems. Unlike humans and most other animals, mosquitoes do not generate antibodies that identify and attack specific infectious agents. Studies of this sort are providing the information needed to manipulate the mosquito immune system to block malaria parasites more effectively and to develop other novel disease control strategies.

Getah virus (GETV) A strain of virus (M1) was isolated from Culex mosquitoes in Hainan province in 1964 by Yang et al  (Table 1) and was subsequently identified as an isolate of GETV by serological and genomic analyses .
Additional GETV isolates have been isolated from mosquitoes collected from Shanghai city and Hebei, Gansu and Yunnan provinces [34, 35] (Table 1). Ten strains of GETV have been isolated from different mosquito species including Aedes vexans, Armigeres obturbans, Culex spp. and unidentified mosquitoes from China, representing a wide geographic distribution and a long time interval. These have been sequenced and analyzed . Full-length genome sequences were determined for three isolates: M1, HB0234 and YN0540.

THE CONVERSATION 28/11/12 Using urban planning to reduce mosquito-borne disease. There are many ways to prevent mosquito-borne diseases – insecticides to kill mosquitoes, vaccines to prevent infection and healthy doses of insect repellent before heading off for fishing trips.
But while each of these strategies can play a part, where we live and how we build our communities may have an even greater effect. More than 5,000 Australians are struck down with mosquito-borne disease every year, mostly caused by the Ross River or Barmah Forest viruses. The La Nina conditions along eastern Australia in recent years have also brought with them the re-emergence of the potentially fatal Murray Valley encephalitis virus. There’s much discussion about the potential impact of climate change on mosquito-borne disease risks but, in fact, urbanisation will influence the activity of zoonotic diseases (diseases passed from animals to humans) even more by disturbing local ecosystems and biodiversity.
