The life cycle of malaria, illustration. The plasmodium parasite, the cause of malaria, is transmitted by the female anopheles mosquito. The life cycle of the parasite consists of a phase of sexual reproduction, carried out in the mosquito, and an asexual phase within the human body. When a female anopheles mosquito bites an infected individual it aspirates some of the blood containing the parasite. When it bites another person, it transmits the parasite, in the sporozoite form, from its salivary glands to the blood.
