Interpretive Summary: Recently several species of aedine mosquitoes have been introduced into new areas outside their normal distribution. These introductions are important since some of the species are known vectors of human pathogens and this increases the risk of disease transmission in the introduced areas. This work was completed at the Center for Medical, Agricultural and Veterinary Entomology of the United States Department of Agriculture. The article will be published in the European Mosquito Bulletin.

Technical Abstract: Information on introductions to new geographic areas of species in the aedine generic-level taxa Aedimorphus, Finlaya, Georgecraigius, Howardina, Hulecoeteomyia, Rampamyia, Stegomyia, Tanakaius and Verrallina is provided.
