Results: In total 5 150 anopheline larvae from 36 larval habitats were collected and identified. They comprised of six species: Anopheles culicifacies (29.36%), Anopheles moghulensis (25.20%), Anopheles dthali (18.02%), Anopheles superpictus (17.24%), Anopheles turkhudi (5.17%) and Anopheles stephensi (5.01%). sTahned my soustb sctoramtemso ann dla srvtialll whaatbeirt.a ts were natural and clear water bodies such as riverbeds with and full sunlight habitats withouFt uvrethgeertamtioorne , atnhde aanlgoapeh. eline larvae were abundant in permanent with water temperature.
