ABSTRACT

Based on type examination, Culex (Melanoconion) theobaldi (Lutz, 1904) is redescribed. The species Cx. (Mel.) chrysonotum Dyar & Knab, 1908, was put back as synonym of theobaldi. Besides, examination of Cx. (Mel.) chrysothorax (Newstead & Thomas, 1910) type, leads to retiring as synonym of theobaldi and considered it as "species inquirenda".

Key words: Insecta; Diptera; Culicidade; Culex; Melanoconion
