<p>Bloodfed Anopheles maculipennis s.l. females were collected resting in and around sheepfolds in the&nbsp;northwestern prefecture of Florina, Greece. The specimens were identified as An. maculipennis and An.&nbsp;messeae on the basis of similarity to published DNA sequence data for the rDNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS2) region. Novel DNA sequences were obtained for the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase I gene (COl)&nbsp;for both species. Correlations of COl and ITS2 sequences were used to identitfy specimens, with respect to ITS2&nbsp;sequences in Genbank. These results constitute new distribution records for these two species in northwestern&nbsp;Greece.</p>
