Abstract

In past history, Malaria had been one of the most prevalent native disease in Iran and around the world, that caused a lot of economic and social losses. Some of the anopheles mosquitoes are vectors of Malaria, thus recognizing their species and ecology is important to fight the disease. For this purpose, this research was performed in Bazoft section of Farsan district, which is one of the focuses of Malaria transmission in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province. The survey included ten villages over a six months period (May to October 1998). In each village four human places and four animal places and larval habitats were chosen and sampling was performed every fifteen days. Adult mosquitoes were collected by the following methods: Hand catch, Total catch, Night biting and Shelter pit. Larvae were collected by ladling. A total of 1769 adult Anopheles and 2583 larvae were hunted, which belonged to the following species: An.superpictus (67.2%), An.maculipennis (27.2%), An.dthaly (2.4%), An.martri (2.2%), An.claviger (1%). Dthaly and claviger species are reported for the first time in this province. Ecologically, superpictus species was the most prevailed one and dispersed over the entire area. Its maximum activity is during late July to early August, and its seasonal activity begins from the second half of may to late September. In Night biting 55% of this species was hunted from animals. Night biting rate for each individual was 1.1. Based on ELISA test, anthropophilic degree of this species was 28.5%. The sporozoit and oocyst rate was zero. In ovary anatomy, parus rate was 37% and up to 4 dilatations was observed.
