Resumen : INTRODUCTION: Larval habitats are important determinants of the Anopheles species occurring in a particular malaria endemic area. The aim of this study was to evaluate the anopheline species in the larval stage detected in malariaendemic localities in Western and Northwestern Colombia. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Anopheles larvae were collected in malaria-endemic localities. Surrounding vegetation and shade at positive larval habitats were registered. In addition, water temperature, pH of the habitats, and their distance from the nearest inhabited place were correlated with the abundance of the species detected. RESULTS: The Colombian primary vectors Anopheles nuneztovari, An. darlingi and An. albimanus were the most abundant species found in the larval stage, whereas An. malefactor was the least recurrent. There were various types of positive larval habitats, with lakes, jagueys, wetlands, lagoons, and ponds being the most representative. There was a significant correlation between the presence of An. nuneztovari larvae and pH and water temperature. CONCLUSION: This study provides relevant information on environmental and ecological parameters that may determine the presence of vector important species in the larval state; this information represents the basis for the design and application of species-specific vector control interventions.
