Bottom Line: The present paper relates to the results of the survey of Anopheles fauna conducted in the state of Rondônia.Of these specimens, 95.1% consisted of Anopheles darlingi, 1.8% An. triannulatus l.s., 1.7% An. deaneorum, 0.8% An. konderi l.s., 0.4 An. braziliensis, 0.1% An. albitarsis l.s., and 0.1% An. benarrochi.An. darlingi was the only species found in all localities; the remaining species occurred in sites with specific characteristics.

ABSTRACT
We conducted a survey of the malaria vectors in an area where a power line had been constructed, between the municipalities of Porto Velho and Rio Branco, in the states of Rondônia and Acre, respectively. The present paper relates to the results of the survey of Anopheles fauna conducted in the state of Rondônia. Mosquito field collections were performed in six villages along the federal highway BR 364 in the municipality of Porto Velho, namely Porto Velho, Jaci Paraná, Mutum Paraná, Vila Abunã, Vista Alegre do Abunã, and Extrema. Mosquito captures were performed at three distinct sites in each locality during the months of February, July, and October 2011 using a protected human-landing catch method; outdoor and indoor captures were conducted simultaneously at each site for six hours. In the six sampled areas, we captured 2,185 mosquitoes belonging to seven Anopheles species. Of these specimens, 95.1% consisted of Anopheles darlingi, 1.8% An. triannulatus l.s., 1.7% An. deaneorum, 0.8% An. konderi l.s., 0.4 An. braziliensis, 0.1% An. albitarsis l.s., and 0.1% An. benarrochi. An. darlingi was the only species found in all localities; the remaining species occurred in sites with specific characteristics.

Mentions: Mosquito capture was conducted along a 380 km stretch of the BR 364 highway, betweenPorto Velho (RO) and Rio Branco (AC). Six distinct localities with the highestpopulation densities along the stretch were selected. These localities were Extrema(09º45'29.1" S 66º21'34.3" W), Vista Alegre (09º39'39.8" S 65º43'57.2" W), Abunã(09º41'48.9" S 65º22'15.8" W), Mutum Paraná (09º37'01.3" S 64º56'24.4" W), Jaci Paraná(09º15'37.2" S 64º23'44.1" W), and Porto Velho (08º48'35.5" S 63º56'30.3" W) (Fig. 1). Vegetation in these areas predominantlyconsists of open rain forest with a high degree of human disturbance, as evidenced bythe removal of native vegetation and its replacement by pasture.
