Anopheles algeriensis Theobald, 1903

This mosquito has been reported from southern and central Europe, northern Africa and western Asia. It bites humans and can transmit malaria. Breeding sites are mainly marshes and slow running brooks overgrown with vegetation. It might occur together with Anopheles claviger, but in contrast to that species has a uniformly brown scutum.
