  1. aSpecies previously confirmed as malaria vectors in Indonesia
  2. Morphologically-based species identifications included: aAedes albopictus; bAnopheles aconitus; cAn. barbirostris; dAn. barbumbrosus; eAn. flavirostris; fAn. hyrcanus; gAn. indefinitus; hAn. kochi; iAn. maculatus; jAn. nigerrimus; kAn. parangensis; lAn. pseudobarbirostris; mAn. schueffneri; nAn. subpictus; oAn. sulawesi; pAn. tessellatus; qAn. umbrosus; rAn. vagus; xCulex. Number and percentage of correctly identified morphological specimens are calculated from the number of sequences that were molecularly identified per species
