Erratum to: The dominant Anopheles vectors of human malaria in the Americas: occurrence data, distribution maps and bionomic précis
Parasites & Vectors volume 4, Article number: 210 (2011)
In our original publication detailing the distribution of the dominant vector species of malaria in the Americas (Sinka et al. ), both Figure one (The predicted distribution map of An. darlingi) and the An. darlingi map shown in Additional file two (The predicted distribution maps of the nine dominant vector species of the Americas) included points on the border between Costa Rica and Nicaragua. These are confirmed absence points and therefore should not have been included. These maps are intended to indicate locations only where the species presence has been confirmed. Anopheles darlingi has never been found or reported from Costa Rica or Nicaragua (as indicated in the Expert opinion map) despite numerous and comprehensive surveys in the area trying to locate it.
Copies of the corrected figure and the updated Additional file can be found in Figure 1 and Additional file 1 (in this publication) and are also available on the Malaria Atlas Project (MAP) website:
