The occurrence of Culex (Lophoceraomyia) pilifermoralis, Cx. (Lop.) wilfredi, and Heizmannia (Heizmannia) chengi is reported for the first time from India from mosquito collections made in the Jeypore hills, Orissa. In collections made during October 1998 from 10 locations, 74 species belonging to 12 genera and 20 subgenera were recorded. Larvae of 40 species were obtained from different larval habitats like bamboo, leaf axils, fallen logs, paddy fields, ponds, ground pools, rock pools, streams, and tree holes. Together with the 14 anopheline species from earlier records, this report brings to 88 the number of mosquito species in the Jeypore hills.
