Abstract:

<p>In the British Isles five species of Anopheles have been recorded, all grouped within the subgenus&nbsp;Anopheles. They are An. atroparvus van Thiel, An. algeriensis Theobald, An. messeae Falleroni, An.&nbsp;claviger (Meigen) and An. plumbeus Stephens. Although Edwards (1936) suspected the existence of An. maculipennis s.s., its presence in the British Isles has never been established. Renewed interest in&nbsp;the distribution of Anopheles mosquitoes and their ability to transmit malaria has arisen in recent&nbsp;years owing to the potential effects of global warming on insects and insect-borne pathogens in&nbsp;Europe.</p>
