Subgenus Carrollia Lutz

Carrollia was originally proposed as a distinct genus by Lutz (1905), with iridescens Lutz, 1905 as its type and the only originally included species. Dyar (1918) appears to have been the first person to regard Carrollia as a subgenus of Culex, followed by Edwards (1932) and all later authors. The current internal division of the subgenus into two species groups, the Bihaicola and Iridescens Groups, the latter with two subgroups, the Urichii and Iridescens Subgroups, is attributable to Valencia (1973).
