Abstract

WHITE mangrove trees (Avicennia nitida Jacq.) growing in clumps in the spring-tide zone of saltwater swamps near Lagos (Nigeria) contain numerous tree-holes, filled with rain water, in which larvæ of several species of Aedes are common. Dalziel1 and Dunn2 have found that A. (Stegomyia) africanus Theo. is a common tree-hole breeder in this area.
