Mosquito larvae from natural breeding sites within Attica basin were collected in 15-days intervals from March 2007 to December 2008. The two - year study revealed eight different mosquito species which belong to three different genera: Anopheles maculipennis complex, Anopheles claviger, Culex pipiens, Culex hortensis, Culex theileri, Culex territans, Culex impudicus and Culiseta longiareolata. Three additional species were caught as adults (Ochlerotatus zammitii, Aedes cretinus and Aedes albopictus). Culex pipiens and Culiseta longiareolata were found in almost all the breeding sites sampled. Potential threats for public health from the above mentioned species are An. maculipennis, Cx. pipiens, and Ae. albopicuts. © Benaki Phytopathological Institute.
