Aim: The study was aimed to identify Simulium species of Mouanko using molecular tools.
Method and Materials: Simulium biting humans were aspirated using a sucking tube for molecular identification. Fifty female Simulium flies were caught using the mentioned technique.
Results: Molecular genotyping revealed that the anthropophilic Simulium black flies caught were of the Simulium damnosums.l. complex.
Conclusion: The presence of Simulium damnosum s.l. indicates the
risk of ongoing onchocercosis transmission in the study area.
