The subgenus Eumelanomyia, as currently interpreted by Sirivanakarn 1971 in his proposed reclassification of Neoculex includes practically all Culex species which were previously placed in the subgenus Mochthogenes and a number of species in the subgenus Neoculex according to the classification of Edwards 1932, 1941. The subgenus in the present sense is one of the largest in Culex with distribution largely restricted to the Ethiopian and Oriental regions. The most up to date records from the literature Stone, Knight and Starcke 1959 Stone 1967, 1970 include approximately 66 nominal species of which 37 are from the Ethiopian region, 27 from the Oriental region, 1 from the Papaun part of the Australasian region and 1 from the South Pacific. For a list of the majority of species currently assigned to Eumelanomyia, see Sirivanakarn lot.cit..
