The subgenus Paraedes Edwards of Aedes Meigen is revised. Paraedes includes 8 currently recognized species that are restricted to the Oriental region. All known stages of barraudi Edwards, bonneae Mattingly, chrysoscuta Theobald, collessi Mattingly, menoni Mattingly, ostentatio Leicester, pagei Ludlow and thailandensis Reinert are described and illustrated, and are included in identification keys. The range and mode of setal branching of the pupae and larvae are given. Geographical distribution, bionomics, type-data and taxonomic discussions are presented for each species. Aedes chrysoscuta is resurrected from synonymy with ostentatio. Aedes aurotaeniatus Edwards is excluded from the subgenus Paraedes.
