Abstract:

The suprageneric and generic classification adopted follow closely the Synoptic Catalog of the Mosquitoes of the World Stone et al., 1959 and the various supplements Stone, 1961, 1963, 1967, 1970. Changes in generic nomenclature arising from the publication of the Catalog include the substitution of Mansonia for Taeniorhynchus and Culiseta for Theobaldia, bringing New and Old World practice into line, the substitution of Toxorhynchites for Megarhinus and Malaya for Harpagomyia, the suppression of the diaeresis in Aedes, Aedeomyia formerly Aedomyia and Paraedes Christophers, 1960b and the inclusion of the last named as a subgenus of Aedes Mattingly, 1958. The only new generic name to appear since the publication of the Catalog is Galindomyia Stone Barreto, 1969. Mimomyia, previously treated as a subgenus of Ficalbia, is here treated, in combination with subgenera Etorleptiomyia and Ravenalites, as a separate genus. A bibliography of key works is included for the benefit of identification at the subgeneric or species level. Author
