Subgenus Microculex Theobald

Microculex was proposed as a distinct genus by Theobald (1907), with argenteoumbrosus Theobald, 1907 [subjective synonym of Culex imitator Theobald, 1903] as the type and only included species. Brunetti (1914) regarded Microculex to be a synonym of Culex, but it seems the synonymy was never recognised. It has been treated as a subgenus of Culex since Dyar (1918). Lane & Whitman (1951) recognised four groups (series) of species known to occur in Brazil, but no attempt has been made to develop a classification for all species of the subgenus.
