Abstract : Examination and redescription of the holotype Culex (Culex) peus Speiser 1904 (substitute name for affinis Adams 1903) established that it is conspecific with Cx. thriambus Dyar 192 1. Therefore, Cx. thriambus is synonymized under peus; Culex stigmatosoma Dyar 1907 is resurrected from synonymy; and Cx. eumimetes Dyar and Knab 1908 is transferred to synonymy under stigmatosoma. This paper also clarifies identification of these species in the literature.
