, a member of the subgenus Nyssorhynchus
is redescribed based on morphological characters of the adults male and female,
fourth-instar larva and pupa. Female, male genitalia, larval and pupal stages
are illustrated. Data about medical importance, bionomics, and distribution are
given based on literature records. Adult female of An. galvaoi
can be easily
misidentified as An. benarrochi
Gabaldón and An. aquasalis Curry.
A few characters are indicated for identifying female and immatures of An.
. Phylogenetic relationships among An. galvaoi
and six other
species of the Oswaldoi Subgroup are estimated using COII mtDNA and ITS2 rDNA
gene sequences. Lectotype of An. galvaoi
, an adult female from Rio Branco,
State of Acre, is invalidated.
