pseudopunctipennis in four representative localities of Bolivia, predicted by the model. Values are monthly means (in days) and variances (in brackets) for the first cohort of mosquitoes and as such represent minimum values of the gonotrophic cycle duration. Sucre is a locality situated in altitude with marked seasons and cool summer; Mataral is a characteristic locality of the mesothermic Andean valleys of Bolivia where malaria transmission is active; Aiquile is a similar locality but cooler and Yacuiba is a characteristic locality where winter "surazo" events act.
