Owing to many earlier difficulties in change in nomenclature, synonymy and mis-identifications, the published distribution records are mostly quoted from Edwards (1941) and later authors. The distribution is given, with notes on taxonomy and bionomics, of 105 culicine species and one of the genus Toxorhynchites, which occur in South Africa and the neighbouring territory, of South West Africa and the Protectorates of Bechuanaland, Swaziland and Basutoland. The culicine species comprise ten genera and seventeen sub-genera.
