Abstract

Phytotelmata is one of the natural breeding places of mosquitoes found in nature. The density of mosquito larvae inhabiting phytotelmata is closely related to the volume of puddles present in the phytotelmata. The research was conducted in residential and plantation area at Pesawaran district, Lampung Province, which aims to find out the type of mosquito larvae, density, and dominance of mosquito larvae that inhabit phytotelmata. The results of this study indicate that in the area of Culex quinquefasciatus larvae larvae have the highest density of 62.76%, and the lowest larvae of Aedes albopictus and Toxorynchites sp. respectively 10,7%. In the highest density plantation area was found in Aedes albopictus larvae of 20.64%. The dominant index of mosquito larvae in the settlement area was 0.4 and the dominant index of mosquito larvae in the plantation was 0.611.
