Anopheles gambiae senso stricto is the primary mosquito vector responsible for the transmission of malaria in most of sub-Saharan Africa. It is a member of a species complex that includes at least seven morphologically indistinguishable species in the Series Pyretophorus in the Anopheles subgenus Cellia. Anopheles gambiae feeds preferentially on humans and is one of the most efficient malaria vectors known.

Freshwater snails of the genus Biomphalaria are intermediate hosts for flatworm parasites of the genus Schistosoma, causative pathogens of human schistosomiasis, in South America, the Greater and Lesser Antilles, Africa, Madagascar and the Arabian peninsula. Biomphalaria glabrata, a neotropical snail, is the major intermediate host of Schistosoma mansoni.
