An atlas of wing photographs with a summary of the numerical characters of the neotropical species of culicoides diptera ceratopogonidae



Contributions of the American Entomological Institute 25(1): 2-72



ISSN/ISBN: 0569-4450

An atlas of wing photographs of females of the 246 described Neotropical species of Culicoides is presented. There is no one taxonomic key now available that will serve for that identification of all Neotropical species of Culicoides. This atlas will help in large part to fill this void because the specific differences in wing pattern 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 wing patterns shown. The 246 valid species (plus two subspecies) listed are distributed in 13 subgenera and 19 subgenerically unplaced species groups. Culicoides birabeni Cavalieri is a synonym of C. furens (Poey) and C. pichindensis Browne is a synonym of C. monticola Wirth and Lee (NEW SYNONYMY): 35 other junior synonyms are listed.
