Anopheles beklemishevi Stegnii & Kabanova, 1976
The mosquito is found in different parts of Russia, ranging from the east coast of the Baltic Sea in the west and extending further east up to central Siberia (Krasnoyarsk). Its northern distribution limit reaches the arctic circle. It prefers forest environments and can be the dominant Anopheles species in some areas. However, it appears not to play a major role in the transmission of malaria. The species is closely related to Anopheles maculipennis.
