Culex tarsalis, Culex stigmatosoma and Culex quinquefasciatus were susceptible to infection with and capable of transmitting to canaries local strains of Plasmodium relictum.
Culex tarsalis and Culex stigmatosoma were more easily infected with these strains than was Culex quinquefasciatus. This observation affords an explanation for the difference in natural infection rates observed in other studies.
