Abstract

Specimens of a mosquito new to the continental USA, Aedes pertinax, were retrospectively identified from 2 collections made in 2011 in Indian River County, FL. Routine mosquito surveillance in subsequent years yielded more than 700 specimens appearing in 100 collections. The distribution of this mosquito in Florida and the United States is currently unknown, and recognition of the adult female is likely hampered by morphological similarities to Ae. atlanticus and Ae. tormentor.
