FORATTINI, Oswaldo Paulo; ISHIATA, George Kenge; RABELLO, Ernesto Xavier  and  COTRIM, Maria das Dores. Observations on Culex mosquitoes of S. Paulo City, Brazil. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1973, vol.7, n.4, pp.315-330. ISSN 1518-8787.

With the use of New Jersey-50 light traps, a survey of Culex mosquitoes was made in the urban área of São Paulo City, Brazil. Beside Culex pipiens fatigans several other species were found, mainly represented by Culex chidesteri, C. dolosus and C. bidens. The combined incidence of these three populations follows nearly the fatigans one and frequently exceeding it. The most high levels of density were found at areas with water treatment but without sewage disposal. Domiciliary collections showed great Culex pipiens fatigans predominancy.

Keywords : Culex; Culex pipiens fatigans; Mosquitoes [urban area].
