Abstract:

Anopheles Cellia dirus, a new species of the leucosphyrus group, and a probable major vector of malaria in Thailand, is described and illustrated in the adult, pupal and larval stages. Comparisons are made between this species and An. Cel. balabaoensis Baisas, the name, which until now, has been commonly applied to dirus.
