Mosquito faunal surveys were carried out in different habitats of 11 hill ranges of the Western Ghats between 2000 and 2012. Thirty three anopheline species were examined and recorded out of 8730 specimens belonging to subgenera Anopheles (12) and Cellia (21). Very low densities of malaria vectors Anopheles (Cellia) fluviatilis (0.7%) and An. (Cel.) culicifacies (3.04%) were also recorded.
