Abstract:

<p>Recent changes in the classification of the composite genus Aedes and tribe Aedini are provided. These include the division&nbsp;of Aedes into genera Aedes and Ochlerotatus (the latter was restored to generic rank), restoration of subgenera Ayurakitia and Verrallina to generic status, transfer of subgenus Sinoaedes to genus Heizmannia and synonymy with subgenus&nbsp;Mattinglyia, and synonymy of tribe Armigerini with tribe Aedini. A revised list containing generic and subgeneric&nbsp;abbreviations was given and included all genera and subgenera of tribe Aedini and family Culicidae.</p>
