Tree holes, crab holes, and swamp pools constituted the larval habitats with Lo. fumida being predominant in tree holes. Adults were found resting in tree holes, tree trunks, root bases, and in crab holes. Species involved in daytime feeding on humans were Ae. cancricomes, Cx. sitiens, Lo. fumida, Rh. wardi, and Ve. lugubris.
