Abstract: An entomological surveillance carried out (March-12 to July-12) to record the mosquito species and their status in Jahangirnagar University (JU) campus. A total 14 species under 6 different species identified. The recorded genera were Anopheles (An), Culex (Cx), Aedes (Ae), Armigeres (Ar), Mansonia (Mn) and Toxorhynchites (Tx).The collected species were Cx. quinquefasciatus, Cx. tritaeniorhynchus, Cx. fuscocephala, Cx. vishnui, Cx. gelidus, Cx. hasensoni, An. annularies, An. vagus, Ae. aegypti, Ae. albopictus, Ar. subalbatus, Tx. splendens, Mn. annulifera, Mn. uniformis. Among the adult mosquitoes Cx. tritaeniorhynchus showed the highest density and Tx. splendens showed the lowest density .High number of Ae. Albopictus were recorded from study area, which is the secondary vector of dengue viruses.
