  1. The distinction into anthropophilic and zoophilic trend is made based on the results presented in Trung et al [31].
  2. 1 All PCR confirmed specimens were molecularly identified as An. dirus s.s.
  3. 2 All PCR confirmed specimens were molecularly identified as An. sawadwongporni
  4. 3 The PCR confirmed specimen was molecularly identified as An. minimus s.s.
  5. 4 The PCR confirmed specimen was molecularly identified as An. pampanai
  6. na = not applicable.
