"Anopheles rampae has been found in sympatry with An. maculatus, An. pseudowillmori and An. sawadwongporni. The immature stages have been found in small rock and sand pools exposed to sunlight, often with green algae, along the Mekong River and in hilly forested areas, about 100–400 m above sea level. Adult females start biting shortly after sunset (18:00–20:00); they are primarily zoophilic but will sometimes bite humans."

Medical Importance:
"Whether or not An. rampae plays a roll in human malaria transmission is unknown."
