Toxorhynchites moctezuma (Dyar and Knab 1906) (status revised) and Toxorhynchites hypoptes (Knab 1907) (status revised) are resurrected from synonymy with Toxorhynchites theobaldi (Dyar and Knab 1906). Toxorhynchites trinidadensis (Dyar and Knab 1906) is synonymized with Toxorhynchites moctezuma (new synonymy). Characters are given to distinguish T. theobaldi, T. moctezuma, and T. hypoptes. Toxorhynchites moctezuma and T. hypoptes are common Middle American species whose larvae are most often found in tree holes, bamboo internodes, fallen nuts or nut husks, and artificial containers.
