Abstract:

Additions and changes in the taxonomic status of mosquitoes from January 1984 through January 1992 are enumerated with the pertinent literature citations. Through this eight-year period, there were described nine new subgenera, 128 new species and one new synonymy. The status of 66 taxa, including synonyms, were changed by transfer in generic or subgeneric status. Since 1984 there has been a net change of 145 species added to the world mosquito fauna, resulting in a total of 3,209 valid species.
