Abstract:

<p>Culex torrentium is reported from Spain for the first time in the summer of 1999 from the region of&nbsp;Cerdanya, province of Girona. Cx. torrentium was associated with Anopheles petragnani, Culiseta&nbsp;longiareolata, Cs. annulata, Culex impudicus, Cx. hortensis and/or Cx. pipiens. Although different&nbsp;taxonomic characters for larvae and females have been tentatively used to separate Cx. torrentium from&nbsp;Cx. pipiens, only male genitalia can be used as a reliable diagnostic character.</p>
