  1. A. Information on population size for each species identified each year, month and location of collection. The mosquitoes were identified according to Wilkins et al.’s protocol [47] (see “Methods”). B. A subset of individuals was also examined according to Santolamazza et al.’s protocol [49] (the percentage of congruent determination with the Wilkins et al.’s protocol is given in brackets)
