  1. Authentication table for MR4 An. gambiae s.s. colonies detailing morphological and molecular characteristics useful for differentiation. Order of tests from left to right: mel: Homochromy (larval cuticular darkening), eye color (pupal or adult), c+/cc (collarless trait), permethrin resistance, dieldrin resistance, DDT resistance, propoxur resistance, PCR: 2La and TEP1, PCR: An. gambiae species identification and rDNA, PCR: white gene. * IN22C+ population is polymorphic for this trait.
