Aedes polynesiensis Marks, 1951

The mosquito is endemic to central and western parts of the Pacific like French Polynesia and Samoa. It is common in these islands, but is replaced in many habitats by the invasive Aedes aegypti. It is a vector of filarial parasites and in laboratory studies, is also able to transmit the arboviruses dengue, chikungunya, Zika and Ross river viruses. However, it appears to be a weak vector of some of these viruses.
