Studies on human malaria in Aotus monkeys. VI. Infectivity of Plasmodium malariae to different Anophelines

J Parasitol. 1975 Oct;61(5):941-3.

Abstract

Anopheles freeborni, A. balabacensis balabacensis, A. atroparvus, A. stephensi, and A. maculatus mosquitoes were infected by feeding on 12 Aotus trivirgatus monkeys infected with a Nigerian strain of Plasmodium malariae. Comparative infectivity studies indicated that the first 2 species were the most heavily infected.
