Abstract

Studies were conducted to determine the susceptibility of Anopheles farauti to different species and strains of Plasmodium. Mosquitoes were infected by feeding on animals or cultures infected with different strains of P. vivax, P. falciparum, P. ovale, P. coatneyi, P. gonderi, P. simiovale, P. knowlesi, and P. brasilianum. Infections of P. vivax and P. coatneyi were transmitted via sporozoites from An. farauti to monkeys. Comparative infection studies indicated that An. farauti was less susceptible to infection than An. stephensi, An. gambiae, An. freeborni, and An. dirus with the Salvador I strain of P. vivax, but more susceptible than An. stephensi and An. gambiae to infection with the coindigenous Indonesian XIX strain.
