Summary and Conclusions

The conclusion of Hoffmann (13) that is a vector of malaria is confirmed by our observations in Temixco, Morelos, Mexico where the malaria incidence is high in a rice growing region and the only mosquito of any importance. It reached a high density, entered homes readily, showed a relatively high preference for human blood, could be infected experimentally and was found infected in nature. Before concluding however (Hoffmann 13) that it is an important vector in all the higher plateaus where it is found with a much higher proportion of , or in the coastal regions where it is found with and apparently not often in as high a density as in the region we studied, we believe that further studies are indicated.
