Abstract:

The pseudonigeria group of the subgenus Stegomyia Theobald genus Aedes Meigen is characterized. A key to identify the species is provided. Information on the present status of the pseudonigeria group of species is summarized. Aedes Stegomyia mickevichae, a new species from Kenya, is recognized. Aedes Stegomyia pseudonigeria Theobald from Angola is shown to be distinct and a new closely related species, Aedes Stegomyia saimedres, is recognized. The distributions of mickevichae, pseudonigeria and saimedres are based on examined specimens.
