In brief: VERY,VERY HIGH

"anopheles quadrimaculatus" is the most important species in the eastern United States regarding malaria transmission.
In the western United States, it's "anopheles freeborni"."anopheles punctipennis" found in the contiguous U.S. States- however, it is not the natural vector of malaria.

Correct- none of them now- however, in the late 19th century, malaria was endemic in the US...
