ISSN/ISBN: 0569-4450

An atlas of 150 wing photographs of females of the described Nearctic species of Culicoides is presented. There is no one taxonomic key now available that will serve for the identification of all Nearctic species of Culicoides. This atlas will help in large part to fill this void because the specific differences in wing patterns are, with few exceptions, easy to distinguish and are useful field characters. The atlas will guide the user to a small group of related species that can then be distinguished by one of the regional keys. A table of numerical (morphometric) characters is also presented for the species. These characters are useful in confirming an identification made on the basis of the wing patterns shown. The 14 valid species (plus 4 subspecies) listed are distributed in subgenera and 8 subgenerically unplaced species groups.
