Author(s): Bhubaneshwari Devi Moirangthem and Dhananjoy Chingangbam Singh
Abstract: Mosquito exploration and survey from Manipur had been taken up for the first time and new record of mosquito had been published and could be expected much as the diversity of the mosquito of the Manipuri is untouched. In this aspect more studies of the different places were carried out. Many larvae of mosquito from breeding ground of Yurembam were brought to the laboratory and reared untilled the adult emerged. Each life stages were collected and identification was based in the larvae and adult females. This time predacious mosquito, Lutzia tigripes (de Grandpre and de Charmoy, 1901) is being reported in the present study. Report of this predacious mosquito from Manipur is unexpected as this species is exclusively for the Afrotropical region. Four species of the subspecies of Lutzia (Lt.) are reported but not the Lt. tigripes from India. This could be used to control the other types of mosquito in future studies.
