Abstract

Identification of host blood meals collected on filter paper in the field from fully fed female anophelines was carried out by a microdot-ELISA; field-caught mosquito species were simultaneously identified (as Anopheles subpictus, A. culicifacies and A. annularis). The results indicated that the...
