Abstract

Entomologic surveys conducted in a small village in an area of known high malaria transmission in El Salvador yielded a high rate of infection in collected inside houses in which cases of malaria had occurred. Of 324 specimens dissected, 12 were found to harbor sporozoites or oocysts. This is in contrast to prior reports of extremely low infection rates in collections of this species from malarious areas, and suggests that under some circumstances does meet the criteria of an effective malaria vector.
