The comparative susceptibilities of colonized species A, B, and C of Anopheles culicifacies complex and Anopheles stephensi were determined for 2 rodent malaria parasites Plasmodium vinckei petteri and Plasmodium yoelii yoelii. All the 3 members of the complex were found to support complete sporogony with varying success. Controls, A. stephensi, become readily infected, with >70% developing oocysts. Of the test groups, species A had the highest percentage of mosquitoes with oocysts (>25%) and sporozoites (>15%). Anopheles culicifacies species B were least susceptible; less than 10% had oocysts and sporozoites in the salivary glands. The results demonstrate that A. culicifacies species A is most susceptible and species B is least susceptible to infections with both the parasites.
