Mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) from crepuscular period in an Atlantic Forest area in Southern Brazil

Abstract: Crepuscular period is one of the factors that may influence the biting activity of mosquitoes. Many of these insects have a peak activity in this period. The purpose of this study was to investigate the afternoon crepuscular activity of Culicidae in a remaining area of Atlantic Forest in western Santa Catarina, southern Brazil. Moreover, the possible influence of abiotic factors, the abundance and species richness were verified. In order to better analyze the influence of crepuscular period in specific composi… Show more

“…Thus, the present study brings additional contributions to the biology of the species collected in the region. Despite a short sampling period at each point, we found considerable abundance and species richness when compared with studies that used similar methodologies (Ferreira‐de‐Freitas et al 2017; Orlandin et al 2017; Santos et al 2019, 2020).…”

“…Three other studies related to the culicid fauna have been carried out in the Vale do Rio do Peixe Municipal Natural Park (Santos et al 2013; Santos et al 2014; Orlandin et al 2017). Another study in the same municipality was carried out by Santos et al (2016), although in an urban area.…”

“…Aedes scapularis had its greatest abundance in the SF site, but in the MP it was more abundant in the NO period. This may be due to the ability of this species to adapt to regenerating sites or with intense changes, such as on a plantation (Orlandin et al 2017). With respect to the type of land use, Haemagogus regalis had its greatest abundance in EF during the NO period, possibly influenced by the presence of epiphytic plants such as bromeliads which are used as a site for oviposition (Berlin 1969, Lane 1953.…”

“…Most species of the genus are widely distributed, and Psorophora (Janthinosoma) ferox (Humboldt 1819) has been reported to occur in the three Americas from Ontario (south Canada) to northern Argentina and Uruguay, with a distribution that spreads east of the Andes Cordillera and includes the central, eastern, and southeastern areas of the USA, Mexico, Central America, the Antilles, Colombia, Venezuela and Brazil (Forattini, 2002;Orlandin et al, 2017).
