Abstract:

The salivary gland play an important role in transmission of pathogen in mosquitoes and other vector borne diseases. In this respect in the present study morphology of Anopheles stephensi, Culex quinquefasciatus and Aedes aegypti, mosquitoes salivary gland  is comparatively studied under a light microscope. The salivary gland preparation shows considerable morphological difference in adult and larvae of Anopheles stephensi as compared to Culex quinquefasciatus and Aedes aegypti, while it is almost similar with minute variation in Culex quinquefasciatus and Aedes aegypti, mosquitoes. The purpose therefore of this article is to discriminate clearly between the morphology of salivary gland in different mosquito genera and their importance.
