An illustrated key for the identification of the female Anopheles mosquitoes of southwestern Asia and Egypt is presented. Thirty-nine species and three subspecies are treated, including 25 species and one subspecies of Anopheles Cellia and 14 species and two subspecies of Anopheles Anopheles. A new species from Egypt of the subgenus Cellia closely related to Anopheles stephensi Liston is left unnamed. Anopheles Anopheles pseudopictus Grassi is removed from synonomy with Anopheles Anopheles hyrcanus Pallas, and Anopheles Anopheles habibi Mulligan and Puri is recognized as a junior synonym of Anopheles Anopheles claviger Meigen. Tables providing important taxonomic references and the geographic distribution for each species are included.
