Identification and Geographical Distribution of the Mosquitoes of North America, North of Mexico
There are now known from the same region 167 species and subspecies in 13 genera and 27 subgenera. The additions and changes in the names of the North American mosquito fauna have been reviewed by Carpenter (91,95,104) and Darsie (140,142). The principal objective of this volume purports to be the revision of the identification keys to adult female and larval stages which incorporate all 167 taxa. Each key is preceded by a detailed description of the morphology of that stage, which is needed to use the key successfully. In addition, each couplet of the two keys is illustrated to assist the user in interpreting the characters employed. A second purpose is to present up-to-date information on the geographical distribution of the mosquito taxa. We are continuing the arrangement used by Carpenter and LaCasse (106), listing the states and provinces from which each taxon has been reported with substantiating references. In addition, we are depicting the distribution on maps; actually the captions of the map plates (Plates 9-49) contain the specific states/provinces in which each taxon is found. Using Carpenter and LaCasse's monograph (106) as a starting point and listing the state/province data given by them, we are adding a total of 574 new state/province records which encompasses the 16 new species described since 1955. Detailed also are 37 instances in which species once reported as occuring in particular states/provinces are deleted.
