Keywords: An. subpictus | Population load | Wing Variation | ITS-2 sequence

A systematic survey (March 2012- Feb 2013)of Anopheline population in rural(Mogra) and urban(Dumdum) areas of West Bengal has been conducted to know the present population load of Anopheles subpictus. A reliminary attempt has been made to assess the potential morphological (wing) as well as molecular variation of Anopheles subpictus by using ITS-2 sequence primer. A considerable sequence variation is observed between the rural and urban population of West Bengal.
