Abstract:

These keys have been compiled primarily from existing literature, although as far as possible, they have been checked against specimens at the United States National Museum and in some instances characters have been supplied for differentiating closely related species and genera. Inasmuch as the entire mosquito fauna of Southeast Asia is currently undergoing intensive taxonomic investigation, these keys must be recognized as being of a preliminary nature and covering only the species known to occur in Vietnam or presumed to be there on the basis of overall zoogeography. It is hoped that specimens not running satisfactorily in the various keys or that raise any doubts will be submitted to the Army Mosquito Project for examination.
