Abstract

This book is worldwide in its scope and represents a compilation of enormous literature dealing with the subject.

The first thirty-four pages contain a generalized discussion of the subfamily Culicinae as a whole. Information on mosquitoes serving as vectors of agents pathogenic to man and other animals, and parasites and predators of the larval and adult stages is presented in tabular form. Much of the material presented, throughout the book, is condensed in tables for the sake of brevity. A section is devoted to each of twenty-eight genera of mosquitoes with their respective subgenera and species. General information on each genus precedes more detailed treatment of the common species. Information on little-known species of each genus or subgenus is generally presented in tables. Some of these tables titled “Distribution of Larvae of Some Little-Known Species….” are somewhat misleading, since they also contain names of some species of which the larval stage is unknown.
