Abstract : The adults of both sexes, pupa and 4th stage larva of Culex (Melanoconion) adamesi, a new species from Panama are described and illustrated. Its affinity with pedroi Sirivanakarn and Belkin 1980, crybda Dyar 1924 and epanastasis Dyar 1921, as interpreted by Sirivanakarn and Belkin (1980) is discussed. The distribution, bionomics and medical importance are summarized.

Molecular Phylogeny of the Vomerifer and Pedroi Groups in the Spissipes Section of the Subgenus Culex (Melanoconion)
The phylogenetic relationships among nine putative species of the Vomerifer and Pedroi Groups of the Neotropical Spissipes Section are investigated by sequencing the internal transcribed spacer 2 region of ribosomal DNA and using phylogenetic analyses, showing that there are two well-supported, divergent groups within a major clade consisting of Cx.

Venezuelan equine encephalitis.
Although epizootic VEEV strains are opportunistic in their use of mosquito vectors, the most widespread outbreaks appear to involve specific adaptation to Ochlerotatus taeniorhynchus, themost common vector in many coastal areas. Expand
Evolution and spread of Venezuelan equine encephalitis complex alphavirus in the Americas
The authors' inferred tree topologies suggest that VEEV is maintained primarily in situ, with only occasional spread to neighboring countries, probably reflecting the limited mobility of rodent hosts and mosquito vectors. Expand
Data-driven identification of potential Zika virus vectors
A data-driven model linking vector species and the Zika virus via vector-virus trait combinations that confer a propensity toward associations in an ecological network connecting flaviviruses and their mosquito vectors predicts that thirty-five species may be able to transmit the virus, seven of which are found in the continental United States.

Transmission of arboviruses to hamsters by the bite of naturally infected Culex (Melanoconion) mosquitoes.
C. vomerifer is a proved important vector of Ossa, Madrid, and Guama viruses in Almirante, the first two of which are important pathogens to human beings in the area, but does not seem to be an efficient vector of VEE in the study area even though it is frequently found harboring this viral agent.
