This contribution has been prepared by two authors who, as members of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, are assigned to the U. S. Federal insect identification unit working in the U. S. National Museum. The support for this publication came from the U. S. Department of the Army.

As pointed out by the authors, this handbook was designed to fill the needs, throughout the world, of the U. S. Military Establishment for a means of identifying the significant mosquito vectors of disease. This need was certainly firmly impressed on us during World War II.

The basic objective of the handbook is to provide a means for entomologists, working with the Military Establishment in any part of the world, to identify mosquitoes that are, or are considered to be, vectors of some disease of man. The basic plan of identification is not with the traditional text-type keys, but with picture keys.
