Abstract

The objective of this study was to update mosquito species distribution in Argentine Patagonia based on new field collections and to examine the material deposited in the La Plata Museum. Culex coronator, Cx. brethesi, and Cx. castroi represented new records for the region, increasing mosquito fauna of Patagonia to 15 species. The expansion of the geographic distribution of Cx. apicinus, Cx. articularis, and Cx. eduardoi at the province level was also provided. Current knowledge about mosquito fauna of Patagonia is restricted mainly to geographic distribution records. Further studies on the bionomic of mosquito species in Patagonian conditions are needed.
