Details are given regarding 28 isolations of Wyeomyia virus from mosquitoes collected in Trinidad during the period mid-1953 through mid-1966. No other island source, mammalian, avian, or reptilian, or other arthropod, has yielded the virus. The serum of eight of 30 Trinidad residents and one of 100 birds was protective in neutralization test, but it is not known whether these reactions are specific.
