The male hypopygia of most mosquito genera afford excellent means of specific identification, with the result that in this country little attention has been given to other methods of male mosquito identification. To study the hypopygium it usually is necessary to remove the tip of the abdomen, clear it with caustic potash and mount on a slide for study with the compound microscope. When large numbers of specimens are received daily for determination the time required for preparation of the hypopygium becomes excessive, therefore the writer was faced with the alternatives of finding more expedient means of determining the Culex males, or not studying them at all.
