Malaria transmission is assured in Africa mainly by the species of the complex Anopheles gambiae followed by Anopheles funestus. But as the malaria elimination is becoming more and more realistic, it is crucial to consider all vectors involved in Plamodium transmission even though in local scale. In this prospect we performed this study to confirm if Anopheles rufipes remains potentially able to transmit Plasmodium since former findings reported this species to be potential malaria vector in Burkina Faso toward 1960. Our data recorded one female of An. rufipes infected by a Plasmodium parasite at the oocyst stage suggesting that this mosquito species still remains a potential human malaria vector. However, future field and laboratory studies are needed to confirm An. rufipes vector competence and capacity.
