Abstract

FORATTINI, Oswaldo Paulo; KAKITANI, Iná; MARQUES, Gisela Rita Alvarenga Monteiro  and  BRITO, Marylene de. New findings of Anopheles mosquitoes in artificial containers. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1998, vol.32, n.6, pp. 598-599. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101998000600015.

New findings of Anopheles mosquitoes in artificial containers are reported. In one, a plastic container served as a breeding place for Anopheles bellator larvae and, in another, four instar larvae of An. albitarsis s.l. were found in an abandoned toilet basin. Reflections are offered as to the selective pressure represented by the production, of an ever increasing scale, of disposable objects.

Keywords : Anopheles; Larva.
