Abstract:

Anopheles Anopheles forattinii new species, a member of the Series Arribalzagia, is described with illustrations of the larval and pupal stages, and male and female genitalia. It is contrasted with 2 similar species, An. Anopheles costai Fonseca Ramos and An. Anopheles mediopunctatus Lutz. This species, and An. costai, occur over much of South America where both have been misidentified as An. mediopunctatus, a species presently only known from southeastern Brazil.
