Abstract

1. A list of the species of mosquitoes found in the three areas studied is presented. Six genera and thirty-five species of Culicidae, subfamily Culicinae, were collected. 2. Data are given showing the larval association in the three areas. 3. Contrary to previous taxonomic descriptions, many adult specimens of Aedes intrudens lack lower mesepimeral bristles, and numerous larvae of Culex apicalis show a variation of 1-2 head heairs per trichopore. 4. The variational ranges of the principal chemical features of the waters in which larval specimens of each species (some exceptions) grew are presented.
