FORATTINI, Oswaldo Paulo  and  SALLUM, Maria Anice Mureb. Studies on some species of Culex (Melanoconion), with the description of a new one from Southern Brazil (Diptera: Culicidae). Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1987, vol.21, n.2, pp.123-156. ISSN 0034-8910.

Redescription of Culex (Melanoconion) oedipus Root and of Cx. (Mel.) plectoporpe Root, as well as the description of a new one, named Cx. (Mel.) rabelloi, are made. The material was collected in S.Paulo State, Southern Brazil. The descriptions include adults, pupal and larval stages, illustrating the morphological aspects and with pictures of breeding places. Some data about known distribution and bionomics are presented, remarking that all the three species seem to be closely associated with artificial manmade enviroments.
