The Culicidae are Nematocere Diptera, they occupy place of choice, either by the role of vector of pathogenic organisms, or by their nuisance. In recent years, the mosquito has become widespread in all humid regions and can spread serious diseases.

In order to know the most widespread mosquito species, we conducted an inventory in the El Marsa wetland (Skikda Algeria) during a period running from January 2016 to December 2016.


The systematic inventory of Culicidae harvested at El Marsa in the sites surveyed revealed, after identification, the presence of 8 species belonging to 4 different genera: Anopheles, Culiseta, Culex, Uranotaenia whose genus is best represented particularly with the species Culex pipiens with close to 50%. We have also ecologically characterized this stand.
