In May 1972, a brief survey of mosquitoes was carried out in the Margolembo area and several other localities in South Sulawesi, Indonesia. A total of 37 species of mosquitoes was collected which includes 10 species of Anopheles, 3 species of Mansonia, 7 species of Aedes, 15 species of Culex and 1 species each of Malaya and Uranotaenia. Six of 37 species collected have not been previously recorded from Sulawesi. Dissection of 31 anophelines and 16 culicines did not reveal any malarial or filarial infection. The morphological characters of the larvae of Culex Lophoceraomyia sp. and Culex pseudovishnui are briefly described. The identity of Anopheles barbirostris from South Sulawesi is discussed and a list of 132 taxa of mosquitoes hitherto recorded from Sulawesi and adjacent islands is presented.
