Anopheles stephensi is distributed in southern Asia, from the Indian subcontinent with a westward extension through Iran and Iraq into the Middle East and Arabian Peninsula to the east in Bangladesh, southern China, Myanmar and Thailand. Anopheles stephensi is a main vector of human malaria in India and the Persian Gulf.

Anopheles cluster sequencing underway

Samples are now in sequencing at the Broad Institute for the NHGRI/NIAID-supported project, Genome Analysis of Vectorial Capacity in Major Anopheles Vectors of Malaria Parasites.

Anopheles darlingi is one of the most important vectors of malaria in the Neotropics (Mexico, Central and South America), with populations from southern Mexico to Argentina.

Anopheles stephensi released

Anopheles stephensi Liston is a major malaria vector with a geographical range from the Middle East through the Indian subcontinent and China. Throughout its natural range, Anopheles stephensi is an important vector for both Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax. Further, Anopheles stephensi can transmit Plasmodium knowlesi, a virulent parasite that is vectored from non-human primates to humans.
