Abstract

Mosquitoes of 12 species belonging to 5 subgenera and 9 genera—Aedes, Anopheles, Culex, Diceromyia, Lorrainea, Rhinoskusea, Stegomyia, Toxorhynchites, and Verrallina—were recorded in the Coringa mangrove forest in Andhra Pradesh, India. 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.
