WIRTH, Willis W.  e  FELIPPE-BAUER, Maria Luiza. The neotropical biting midges related to Culicoides paraensis (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae). Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz [online]. 1989, vol.84, suppl.4, pp.551-565. ISSN 0074-0276.

Culicoides paraensis (Goeldi), a common and widespread American bloodsucking midge that has been incriminated in the transmission of Mansonellosis and Oropouche Fever of humans in South America, is redescribed and figured. All published records are listed and new distribution is based on examination of extensive collections from throughout its range. Three closely related species of the subgenus Haematomyidium that have been confused with C. paraensis are briefly redescribed and figured, and a key is presented for their identification.

Palavras-chave : Culicoides paraensis; human disease transmission; larval habitats; related species.
