Abstract:The results showed that: (1)It is relatively reliable in distinguishing Anopheles sinensis from An. anthropophagus, An. junlianensis, An. yatsushiroensis, and An. kweiyangensis; as well as in distinguishing An. liangshanensis from An. anthropophagus by egg-forms. (2)It is relatively unreliable among other Anopheles species, and it is necessary to combine with morphological characteristics at other stages of the life cycle. (3)It plays a very important role in distinguishing the species in Anopheles hyrcanus group by deck shape and outer shape of egg such as ratio of (a) deck-width/egg width; (b) deck-width/width of float inner edges; (c) width of float inner edge to deck-edge/deck-width.
