oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Comparative studies on morphology and laboratory biology of Culex (Culex) pipiens Linnaeus (Diptera: Culicidae) from South Africa and England
Culex pipiens Linnaeus from South Africa and England and Culex pipiens var. molestus Forskal from England were compared in respect of five quantitative morphological characters to assess their taxonomic status.
