Anopheles albimanus (An. albimanus), strain STECLA (also referred to as Santa Tecla) is a general use 'wild type' colony, with wild eye color, that contains no stripe+. It is possible that this stock has been mixed at some point with another 'wild-type' An. albimanus stock called 'Apastepeque' that was maintained in the same laboratories. An. albimanus STECLA is susceptible to propoxur at 20 ppm for 1 hour at the fourth instar; it is the propoxur susceptible stock to which the MACHO males were crossed.

Each tube of MRA-133B contains approximately 200 unsexed, adult wild-type An. albimanus, strain STECLA mosquitoes, which were preserved in liquid nitrogen (quick-frozen). MRA-133B is suitable for DNA and RNA isolation, protein extraction, etc.
