We report new records for Culiseta annulata from Kuwait. Prior to our records, Culiseta longiareolata was the only Culiseta sp. known from Kuwait. Culiseta annulata is a vector of Tahyna virus (Bunyaviridae) to humans throughout Asia. We tested a limited number of mosquitoes for Tahyna virus and other viruses. Tahyna virus was not detected, but we did discover a mosquito Densovirus in a pool of Cs. annulata using next generation sequencing.
