Abstract:

<p>The distribution of the European tree-hole mosquito, Ochlerotatus geniculatus, in Fennoscandia is reviewed. Based on the&nbsp;examination of museum specimens from Denmark, and published and unpublished collection data from Sweden, the range&nbsp;of this species is revised and extended. Distributional data from Norway and Finland are scarce and no recent records are&nbsp;available from either country. Factors limiting the northern distribution of Oc. geniculatus in Sweden, and the possibility&nbsp;that loss of tree-hole habitats threatens the survival of this species in central Fennoscandia, are also discussed.</p>
