Tensaw virus, a member of the Bunyamwera arbovirus group, was isolated on 156 occasions from 365,654 mosquitoes tested between 1960–1963 from southwest Alabama, southeast Georgia, and central and south Florida. Of these isolates, 116 were from Wiedemann and 31 from (Lynch-Arribalzaga); the remaining nine were from five other mosquito species, including Say, Dyar & Knab, (Dyar), Theobald, and (Walker). Antibodies were detected in dogs, raccoons, cattle, and man; also the virus was isolated from the blood of a dog. No evidence of infection was noted in wild birds or in sentinel chickens.
