Temporal species composition of Anopheles farauti, Anopheles hinesorum, Anopheles lungae and Anopheles solomonis from villages in Western Province. Total numbers of An. farauti, An. hinesorum, An. lungae and An. solomonis identified by PCR are shown in blue, red, green and orange, respectively. Analyses of the Dec 2014 collection in Jack Harbour confirmed all anophelines were An. farauti (n = 96). Analyses across all collections in Obobulu confirmed 86 % An. farauti (n = 19) and 14 % An. hinesorum (n = 3). Analyses across all collections in Tuguivili confirmed 91 % An. farauti (n = 60), 3 % An. hinesorum (n = 2) and 6 % An. lungae (n = 4). Key: ND, no data; 0, no specimens were caught
