Abstract : A light trap survey was conducted in Da Nang, Vietnam for 42 weeks beginning 1 June 1969. Over 150,000 specimens were sorted and identified. The most numerous mosquitoes collected were Culex tritaeniorhynchus, Anopheles sinensis, and Anopheles vagus. C. tritaeniorhynchus was the most prevalent mosquito throughout the study. A. sinensis reached peaks during September, October and November. A. vagus exhibited the most seasonal distribution of the three species. (Author)
