Abstract: A study was made to test for host preferences of sixteen Japanese mosquitoes on either cold-and warm-blooded animals. Five species of snakes, one lizard, one trutle, three frogs, one newt, chicks and mice were exposed separately to a total of 12,220 hungry female mosquitoes in the breeding cages (20×20×30cm) under a semi-natural condition during the period of June to September, both in 1967 and in 1972 in the district of Nagasaki. The results showed that females of Culex infantulus fed readily on frogs, snakes, lizards and turtles as well as chicks and mice. Uranotaenia bimaculata and Culex hayashii fed readily on only frogs. Culex kyotoensis, Culex pallidothorax, Culex vorax and Orthopodomyia anopheloides whose natural feeding preferences had been known poorly, fed readily on chicks but did on neither reptiles nor amphibians. Although they had been known as the mammal-bird feeder, considerable numbers of Culex pipiens pallens, Aedes albopictus and Aedes togoi fed on both snakes and frogs in the breeding cages. Tripteroides bambusa fed readily on chicks and mice, and also relicutantly on snakes and turtles, but did not feed on frogs. Aedes vexans nipponii, Culex tritaeniorhynchus sommorosus and Armigeres subalbatus, which had been known as the zoophilious, fed readily on mice and chicks, and also relicutantly on snakes, turtles and/or frogs. Anopheles sinensis and Aedes japonicus fed readily on chicks and mice but did not feed on both reptiles and amphibians. None of the mosquito species tested did feed on newts.
