SENISE, Luana Valente  and  SALLUM, Maria Anice Mureb. Systematics of Anopheles lanei Galvão and Amaral, a species of the subgenus Nyssorhynchus Blanchard (Diptera: Culicidae). Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz [online]. 2007, vol.102, n.8, pp. 959-967. ISSN 0074-0276.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0074-02762007000800011.

Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) lanei Galvão and Amaral is here redescribed using morphological characteristics of adult, male and female, fourth instar larva and pupa. The larva, pupa, and male genitalia are illustrated. Diagnostic morphological characters of adults, male genitalia, fourth instar larva and pupa are provided to distinguish An. lanei from other species of the Argyritarsis section. Species distribution data are based on the published literature records and bionomics data are based on both literature records and field data.

Keywords : Culicidae; Anopheles lanei; Nyssorhynchus; Systematics; Serra da Mantiqueira; Brazil.
