Abstract : Confirmed identification of Culex (Culex) restuans Theobald in Central America is reported for the first time. Larval, male, and female specimens were examined from Guatemala and Honduras with the result that no significant difference could be found between the Central American population and that of the western United States. Larval and female characters are illustrated and described to allow identification of this species in Guatemala.
