A total of 114 species and subspecies are considered in this extensive review of the anopheline mosquitoes of the Indo-Australian region. Following a section on morphology and techniques, descriptions are given of the adult, male terminalia, and larva of each of the species and subspecies, except for those stages which have not as yet been described. This is almost entirely a review of the literature; many descriptions are taken directly from other publications and this apparently is true of most of the illustrations. In addition there are brief summaries of the bionomics, distribution, and relation to malaria of each of the species. There are 22 distribution maps. At the end of the book keys are given to adult females and fourth stage larvae.

Although this is a conventional taxonomic treatise, it is gratifying to note that the authors recognize the limitations of a purely morphological approach to the solution of problems of speciation among the many closely related anopheline populations of this region.
