Abstract

A list of 88 nominal taxa of mosquito species (Diptera: Culicidae) originally described from Uganda is given. The list includes 68 valid species, 7 subspecies, 6 varieties, and 7 synonyms, within 10 tribes, 14 genera, and 13 subgenera. All 3 subfamilies of Culicidae (Anophelinae, Toxorhynchitinae, and Culicinae) are represented. The type localities of the different species are updated for quick identification based on the present political boundaries within Uganda. The species stages that are as yet not fully described in the literature, and those species whose breeding habitats are unknown are indicated.

Résumé

Une liste de 88 noms taxomiques d’espèces de moustiques (Diptera: Culicidae) originellement décrites de l’Uganda est donnée. Cette liste inclue 68 espèces validées, 8 sous-espèces, 6 variétés et 7 synonymes, le tout réparti en 10 tribus, 14 genres et 13 sous-genres. On présente toutes les 3 sous-familles de Culicidae (Anophelinae, Toxorhynchitinae, et Culicinae). Les types de localités pour différentes espèces sont mis à jour afin de permettre une identification rapide basée sur les divisions administratives actuelles à l’intérieur de l’Uganda. Les états et stades de développement des espèces qui ne sont pas encore entièrement décrites dans la littérature et d’autres espèces dont les milieux naturels de développement restent méconnus y sont indiqués.
