  1. Notes: The number of mosquitoes from each genus is split into sex (male, female, unknown) and female (F) status (blood-fed, gravid, unfed, unknown). An unknown sex or status is caused by significant damage of the specimen. The subtotals show the proportion of each genus in relation with the total number of mosquitoes collected within each trap
