Summary and Conclusions

Tests were designed to determine the effect of oviposition from flight of three species of Anopheles in laboratory work concerning selection among oviposition sites. Eggs oviposited from flight were scattered over wider areas than test sites, and the accidental overlapping distributions of eggs gave the effect of apparent indiscriminate distribution and lack of selection.
