Reiter, P. and R.F. Darsie. 1984. Aedes albopictus in Memphis, Tennessee, (USA): An achievement of modern transportation? Mosquito News 44(3): 396-399.

Abstract
Containerization and the Lighter Aboard Ship (LASH) concept have transformed the international shipping industry in the past decade. These technological advances and their potential significance to medical entomology are discussed in the light of the capture of an adult female Aedes albopictus in the center of Memphis, Tennessee.

An adult female Aedes (Stegomyia) albopictus (Skuse) was collected at a cemetery refuse dump in the center of Memphis, Tennessee, on the night of June 2, 1983.
