Abstract : This is a taxonomic revision of the adults and 4th stage larvae of the true mosquitoes of Japan including the Ryukyu Archipelago and the Ogasawara islands, and South Korea. The pupa is only briefly considered in the subfamily Anophelinae. The family Culicidae is divided into 2 subfamilies: Anophelinae and Culicinae. The subfamily Culicinae comprises 4 tribes: Culicini, Uranotaeniini, Sabethini and Toxorhynchitini. No changes are made to the generic and subgeneric divisions. Culex (Barraudus) inutomii Kamimura and Wada is elevated to species rank from a subspecies of modestus. Toxorhynchites (Toxorhynchites) yarnadai (Ouchi) and TX. (Tox.) yaeyamae Bohart are reduced to subspecies of manicatus (Edwards). New taxa are as follows: Culex (Eumelunomyia) hayashii ryukyuanus new subspecies, Cx. (Lutzia) shinonagai new species, Heizmannia kana new species, Aedes (Ochlerotatus) impiger daisetsuzanus new subspecies, Ae. (Och.) hexodontus hokkaidensis new subspecies, Ae. (Finlaya) japonicus amamiensis new subspecies, Ae. (Fin.) japonicus yaeyamensis new subspecies, Ae. (Fin.) nishikawai new species, Ae. (Stegomyia) flavopictus miyarai new subspecies, Ae. (stg.) wadai new species, Uranotaenia (Pseudoficalbia) novobscura ryukywzna new subspecies, Tripteroides (Tripteroides) bambusa yaeyamensis new subspecies. The male of Anopheles (Anopheles) safieroi saperoi Bohart and Ingram and the larva of Aedes (Geoskusea) baisasi Knight and Hull are described for the first time. The bionomics and relation to diseases, when known, are briefly discussed for each species. The morphology of the larval maxilla is discussed, and the following new terms are proposed: lacinial suture, lateral artis, mesostipes, palpostipes, pseudoartis and stipital sensorium. In addition, a new numbering system for the maxillary ring-based setae is presented.
