Abstract: Recently, environmental carry over symbiotic bacteria has a significant attention in the role of microbes in mosquito gut. The gut microbes influence the transmission and development of pathogens. However, the effects of micro biota in guts made the parasites to proliferate with the host interaction. So identification of gut microbe is very important for vector control mainly on malarial mosquitoes. Anopheles stephensiis a primary vector for spreading malarial disease in Asia and most predominant in the Kancheepuram district, Tamilnadu, India. In this present investigation we found that unique environmental carryover soil Proteobacteria in midgut of Anopheles stephensiwhere malaria fever outbreak subtropical zone. Larvae of Anopheles stephensimosquitoes were collected from kancheepuram district, Tamilnadu, India. The genomic DNA isolated and 16s rRNA gene sequencing performed for bacterial identification in midgut region of Anopheles stephensimosquitoes and distance tree constructed to determine the origin. Our finding suggested that single existence of soil environmental Mesorhizobium Sp. in the gut. Most of the other bacterial genera in the study have been already identified. Scientists were under pressure to investigate further to know mechanism of the carryover environmental microbes to mosquitoes. This preliminary interesting report gives a path for the scientist to explore further to control the malarial vector disease .
