Abstract

Anopheles (Anopheles) hyrcanus was detected for the first time in Austria, in a floodplain forest in the city of Vienna. From May to September 2012, we found 135 females of this species within the scope of a mosquito monitoring program. Anopheles hyrcanus transmits Sindbis and Tahyna viruses and was reported to be a potential vector for human malaria and dirofilariasis. An updated distribution map depicts that An. hyrcanus has extended its range northwards across the European Alps.
