Abstract

MARCONDES, Carlos Brisola  and  PATERNO, Ueslei. Preliminary evidence of association between species of mosquitoes in Atlantic forest of Santa Catarina State, (Diptera: Culicidae). Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2005, vol.38, n.1, pp. 75-76. ISSN 0037-8682.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0037-86822005000100019.

A positive coefficient of association (affinity) between Runchomyia reversa and Anopheles cruzii and high (0.38) index were observed, probably due to the similar breeding places (bromeliads) and to landing habits. Furthermore, a high (0.92) index of association between Oc. scapularis and Wyeomyia incaudata, with low coefficient of association was observed.

Keywords : Culicidae; Interspecific association; Runchomyia reversa; Anopheles cruzii; Bromeliad.
