This paper deals with the taxonomy of 22 Aedimorphus species occurring in southern Africa and in which the tarsi lack distinctive pale markings. These species formed a dominant part of the aedine fauna collected during arbovirus field studies in South Africa and it was the experience that much of the adult female material collected could not be identified beyond the subgeneric level.
