Interpretive Summary: Current and previously published catalogs of the dipteran family Culicidae do not include a citation category for descriptions and illustrations of the female genitalia of included taxa. The present article contains literature citations of species illustrations and/or descriptions of female genitalia for taxa in the mosquito tribe Mansoniini and provides valuable information useful in separating these taxa. This work was completed at the Center for Medical, Agricultural and Veterinary entomology of the United States Department of Agriculture, Gainesville, Florida. The article will be published in the scientific journal, European Mosquito Bulletin.
Technical Abstract: Examples are provided for species of the mosquito tribe Mansoniini with published illustrations and/or descriptions of the female genitalia and include corresponding literature citations. Most species of Mansonia Blanchard have only the tergum VIII illustrated and/or described for the female genitalia.
