Site last updated 30 July 2004

This site contains a complete, world listing of every species of mosquito (Diptera: Culicidae) described to date, with distribution maps for all species.

Several catalogues of the mosquito fauna of individual countries are also included and this section is currently being expanded.

Also included are lists of mosquito species which are known vectors of diseases transmitted to humans.

The classification of the Culicidae used on this site is essentially that of Reinert (2001), with the exception that the genus Deinocerites is maintained here as a separate genus, rather than included as a subgenus of Culex, as the latter classification may be premature.
