Detection of Plasmodium species-specific DNA from dried mosquito salivary gland of sample #118 (a) and 126 (b). The nested PCR assay was carried out for the detection of rRNA gene for P. falciparum, P. vivax, P. knowlesi, P. coatneyi, P. cynomolgi, and P. inui. M, 100 bp ladder size marker; Pf, P. falciparum; Pv, P. vivax; Pm, P. malariae; Pcy, P. cynomolgi; Pk, P. knowlesi; Pin, P. inui; Pct, P. coatneyi; NC, Negative control (Plasmodium DNA as the template was replaced with water)
