Abstract

Collucci, E. & Sallum, M. A. M.: Phylogenetic analysis of the subgenus Kerteszia of Anopheles (Diptera: Culicidae: Anophelinae) based on morphological characters. Insect Syst. Evol. 34: 361-372. Copenhagen, December 2003. ISSN 1399-560X.

A phylogenetic analysis was carried out for 12 species of Anopheles (Kerteszia) Theobald with Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) oswaldoi (Peryassü), An. (Stethomyia) kompi Edwards and An. (Lophopodomyia) squamifemur Antunes as outgroup species. Sixty-six characters were coded from the external morphology of the adult male, adult female, fourth-instar larva and pupa, and analyzed under the parsimony criterion using PAUP. The results confirm that Kerteszia, and the clade Kerteszia + Nyssorhynchus, are both monophyletic. Bootstrap support was ≥ 50% for all internal nodes, except for the (An. bellator + An. homunculus) clade which was < 50%. The results of this study allow a confident estimate of the relationships of species within Kerteszia.
