Anopheles bancroftii Giles, 1902

This mosquito is found in northern and north-eastern Australia, as well as in Papua New Guinea. It is regarded as a malaria vector. Apart from humans it feeds also on domestic animals (see Foley et al., 1992 or Keven et al., 2017). Occasionally, it has been also shown to carry arboviruses (e.g. van den Hurk et al., 2002). Breeding has been recorded from swamps with abundant vegetation.
