Abstract

Anopheles lindesayi japonicus Yamada is an uncommonly collected mosquito in Korea, and its presence is based upon limited collection data and anecdotal reports in Korean mosquito literature: 45 specimens collected from 15 identified sites. This study reports the collection of 538 specimens from 16 sites as part of the authors' 2004–2007 anopheline surveillance. Larvae were collected from stream margins, stream pools, rock pools, seepage springs, artificial containers, swamps, and ditches and were found in association with seven other culicid species. Inclusion of the authors' data with previous published and unpublished records makes this a comprehensive report on this species in Korea. New province records are reported for this species at Hwacheon and Wonju in Gangwon Province, Mt. Palgong in Daegu Metropolitan, and Chungju and Mt. Worak in Chungcheongbuk Province in the Republic of Korea.
