    Abstract

    In Malaysia, cemeteries and rubber plantations are the preferential habitats of Aedes albopictus (Skuse), the principal vector of dengue. Natural predators of Ae. albopictus were identified by a precipitin test. Positive reactions with anti-albopictus sera were shown in four species of spiders, comprising Heteropoda venatoria (76.6%), Heteropoda sp. (42.9%), Pardosa sp. (75.9%), and Leucauge decorata (60%), collected from the cemetery, and five species comprising Passiena sp. (41.8%), Leucauge grata (46.2%), Heteropoda venatoria (90%), Cyclosa insulana (33.3%), and Nephila maculata (27.8%) collected from rubber plantations. All of the spider species represent new host records as predators of Ae. albopictus.
