Pagination or Media Count:
Anopheles Anopheles bradleyi King, An. Ano. crucians Wiedemann and An. Ano. georgianus King are taxonomically redefined by morphology, ethology and distribution, and established as the crucians subgroup of the An. Ano. punctipennis Say species group. This study involved the examination of over 1,800 specimens and the preparation of 15 full-page illustrations. Species descriptions include sections on type-data, synonymy, descriptions of female, male, pupa, and larva, distribution, taxonomic discussion, bionomics and medical importance. Keys for the crucians subgroup are presented for male genitalia, pupae and 4th stage larvae. Additional keys are presented, in an appendix, to separate the crucians subgroup from the other southeastern United States anophelines. The 1st through 4th stage larvae of bradleyi and crucians, the 4th stage larva of georgianus and the pupae of bradleyi and georgianus are completely illustrated for the first time. Tables with the ranges of setal branching are included for the 4th stage larvae and pupae of each species.
