Abstract:

The adult male and female of Aedes Stegomyia josiahae n. sp. from Tanzania are described and illustrated. Diagnostic characters for distinguishing Ae. josiahae from closely allied species are given. The distribution of Ae. josiahae is based on examined specimens. Aedes josiahae is most closely related to Ae. kivuensis Edwards. These two species together with Ae. bromeliae Theobald, Ae. lilii Theobald, Ae. simpsoni Theobald, Ae. strelitziae Muspratt, Ae. subargenteus Edwards, and Ae. woodi Edwards form the simpsonia subgroup within the aegypti group.
