The grouping into faunal areas of the Ethiopian zoo-geographical region of Africa has been based chiefly on that used by Chapin (1932) in his work on the birds of the Belgian Congo. The region includes most of the African continent south of the Tropic of Cancer. Edwards (1941) showed that these divisions can also be applied to the distribution of the Culicidae. Further details concerning the Anophelini have been added by De Meillon (1947); Mattingly (1952 and 1953a) has correlated considerable data relating to the sub-genus Stegomyia, with additional notes (1953b and 1954) and with Bruce-Chwatt as co-author (1954).
