Abstract: As part of the Medical Entomology Branch program to survey communities in the Northern Territory for mosquitoes, a visit was made to Wadeye, Peppirnenarti and Daly River in September 1991. Wadeye and Peppirnenarti are aboriginal communities within the Daly River/Port Keats Aboriginal Land Trust some 250 km southwest of Darwin. The community of Wadeye is situated adjacent to an extensive mangrove area and is bordered by Sandfly Creek. Peppimenarti is located adjacent to a large swamp and seasonally flooded area known as the Moyle flood plain. Daly River, otherwise known as Nauiyu Nambiyu, is situated on the northbank of the Daly River approximately 150 km south-west of Darwin. The community and surrounding settlement are in close proximity to a number of permanent lagoons and seasonally swampy areas. The survey was conducted to assess the mosquito populations of the communities visited. Peppimenarti and Wadeye were previously surveyed in April 1987 and January 1984 respectively. The last visit to Daly River was made in August 1990.
