SILVA, Júlia dos Santos; ACEL, Anagela Maria; GUIMARAES, Anthony Érico  and  ALENCAR, Jeronimo. Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) argyritarsis larvae found in artificial breeding sites in the State of Mato Grosso. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2008, vol.41, n.3, pp. 313-314. ISSN 0037-8682.

The finding of immature forms of culicid mosquitoes in water tanks at ground level is reported. Anopheles argyritarsis and Aedes albopictus were found in the municipality of Várzea Grande (MT). It is considered that these artificial containers may constitute additional locations that anophelines can use as breeding sites.

Keywords : Anopheles; Vector ecology; Artificial containers; Larva.
