Restoration of Ayurakitia to Generic Rank in Tribe Aedini and a Revised Definition of the Genus

J F Reinert. J Am Mosq Control Assoc. .

Abstract

Ayurakitia, previously treated as a subgenus of genus Aedes, is restored as a genus in tribe Aedini of family Culicidae. Rationale for this action is discussed. The genus includes 2 species (griffithi and peytoni) and has been reported from Southeast Asia. The most distinctive features of the genus are listed. A revised and expanded definition of the genus and illustrations of the female and male genitalia, pupa, and 4th-stage larva of the type species are provided.
