Studies made in 1933 by Matheson, Boyd, and Stratman-Thomas (3) have shown that Theobald is an efficient host for , the causative organism of tertian malaria. Infection was demonstrated in 4 out of the 6 mosquito specimens dissected after having fed on a gametocyte carrier, and an attack of malaria was produced in a patient by the bite of one of these mosquitoes. It has recently been found that this mosquito occurs in several localities in central and southern Florida (1, 2) and that the Florida specimens represent a southern race of the species (2). In October, 1935, a number of female collected near Orlando, Fla., were sent by mail to the Division of Malaria Research of the Florida State Board of Health at Tallahassee, where certain of them were tested for their ability to act as hosts for , the causative agent of aestivo-autumnal malaria.
