Anopheles sacharovi Favre, 1903

This mosquito is found in southern Europe and western Asia and is an important malaria vector. It is anthropophilic, but also feeds on a large variety of other mammals and birds. Blood-meal analyses indicated that it has a preference for domestic animals and humans, biting in the evening or during the day. It breeds mainly in stagnant water like swamps, pools, rice fields and ditches. A. sacharovi is closely related to Anopheles maculipennis.
