Monthly periodicity and abundance of mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) near Batemans Bay on the south coast of New South Wales, 1985-1988
Journal of the Australian Entomological Society 31 (3), 281-288
Abstract: During an investigation of the seasonal activity of mosquitoes and arboviruses in two coastal native forests, collections of adult mosquitoes with dry-ice baited light traps led to the determination of a fauna comprising 34 species for the Termeil State Forest and 33 species for the Mogo State Forest/Batemans Bay locality. The monthly collection data for all species are presented, revealing the dominance of the saltmarsh pest species Aedes vigilax (Skuse) at Mogo, and the sylvan freshwater species Anopheles annulipes Walker s.l. and Coquillettidia linealis (Skuse) at Termeil. The results reflect the respective environments with the extensive saline marsh and mudflat habitats at Batemans Bay contrasting with the predominantly freshwater marsh and lake habitats of Termeil.
