<p>Mosquitoes of the Anopheles maculipennis complex were collected as overwintering adults in a disused war fortification near the Cliffe marshes in the county of Kent, southeast England in January 2002. Fifty-three adult females were collected and fifty-two of these were identified as either An. atroparvus van Thiel or An. messeae Falleroni on the basis of similarity to rDNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS2) sequences in GenBank. Forty specimens (76.9%) were identified as An. messeae and 12 (23.1%) as An. atroparvus. DNA sequences for these species from England are provided for the first time, which enhance knowledge of the species composition and distribution of the An. maculipennis complex in England.</p>
