  1. The exclusive (Exc.) column counts those species identified in all four reviews. The inclusive (Inc.) column counts those species identified by any of the four authors and are the candidate DVS considered for mapping. The numbers given in each of the review author columns record in which Macdonald's malaria epidemiology zones the species can be found: 4 - North Eurasian; 5 - Mediterranean; 6 - Afro-Arabian 320. The final DVS species listed were defined during two separate Technical Advisory Group (TAG) meetings. EO = Expert Opinion.
