Author(s): Manish Chandra Patel
Abstract: A revised and updated checklist of mosquito fauna of Andaman & Nicobar Islands is prepared in view to present an elaborative taxonomic status of Culicidae fauna in these islands in accordance with recent taxonomic changes. In present study, in light of recent taxonomical changes, mosquito fauna in these islands are now represented by 109 species in 25 genera and 24 subgenera under two subfamily. The Subfamily Anopheline is represented by 23 species in one genus and two subgenra and second Subfamily Culicinae comprises of 86 species in 09 Tribes and 24 genera. This checklist can be treated as revised updated list of mosquito fauna in these islands, but it should not be treated as complete because a much more comprehensive study of mosquito fauna in some remote islands of Andaman and Nicobar group is still needed to complete the list.
