Abstract:

Results of a recent survey of the 3 species of Anopheles mosquitoes, Anopheles Nyssorhynchus aquasalis, Anopheles Nyssorhynchus argyritarsis, and Anopheles Anopheles pseudopunctipennis, on the island of Grenada are contrasted with the only other published survey of these species on Grenada, which was published in 1938. Results suggest that a significant change in the abundance and distribution of each species has occurred over this period. Physical characteristics of the aquatic habitats for each species are described and compared.
