A virus isolated from Aedes abserratus collected in Simsbury, Connecticut, was shown in complement-fixation tests to belong to the California group of arboviruses. The source mosquitoes were taken about 1 month after the species' first appearance in light-trap collections in the course of an ecologic study of the spring Aedes.
