The author has assembled the extensive information on the geographic distribution of malaria-carrying Anopheles, using as source material not only published literature but a large number of personal communications. With the exception of A. punctipennis and A. subpictus, he has limited his attention to the species of proved importance. There is a brief introduction, after which each species is noted with a list of the localities where it is found and references to the literature. A bibliography of 397 titles supplements these lists. Spot maps showing the recorded distribution of each species are also given, but, as the author points out, these are often misleading because records from restricted localities frequently give an optical impression of density that does not exist in nature. To the specialist working with malaria or malaria-carrying Anopheles, this compilation will be invaluable.
