Phylogenetic trees for Plasmodium positive mosquito specimens in the An. funestus group inferred by applying maximum likelihood analysis in MEGA v.6 based on a ITS (267–763 bp), using Kimura-2 model and b cox1 barcode region (615–658 bp) using GTR+G model. Bootstrap support values from 1000 replications are indicated above nodes. Anopheles dthali was included for outgroup purposes. The branch length scale represents substitutions per site. Furthermore, selected sequences of Plasmodium-positive specimens were deposited in GenBank [accession numbers: An. funestus, MH299885-MH299890 (cox1), MH298707-MH298752 (ITS2); An. rivulorum, MH547425 (cox1); An. longipalpis, C MH547426-MH547427 (cox1), MH536653-MH536654 (ITS2)]
