The first interesting revelation was the abundance of certain types of bacteria in swarming mosquitoes. Genera such as Shewanella, Azospira, and Rhdocyclacea all appeared to be enriched in these populations. They are primarily environmental bacteria found in rice fields. For the authors, this offered some idea as to geographic links to mating and swarming fitness. But while this geospatial information was intriguing, it did little to help with the original aim.
