Abstract: Midgut transgenic bacteria can be used to express and deliver anti-parasite molecules in malaria vector mosquitoes to reduce transmission. Hence, it is necessary to know the symbiotic bacteria of the microbiota of the midgut to identify those that can be used to interfering in the vector competence of a target mosquito population. The bacterial communities associated with the abdomen of Nyssorhynchus braziliensis (Chagas) (Diptera: Culicidae) and Nyssorhynchus darlingi (Root) (Diptera: Culicidae) were identified using Illumina NGS sequencing of the V4 region of the 16S rRNA gene. Wild females were collected in rural and periurban communities in the Brazilian Amazon. Proteobacteria was the most abundant group identified in both species. Asaia (Rhodospirillales: Acetobacteraceae) and Serratia(Enterobacterales: Yersiniaceae) were detected in Ny. braziliensis for the first time and its presence was confirmed in Ny. darlingi.
