Abstract : During this period, four major expeditions to the Australian Territory of Papua and New Guinea were conducted. These expeditions resulted in the accumulation of a very large collection of mosquitoes, including adults, pupae, larvae and link-bred series. Approximately 75,000 specimens (including all stages) were collected from the Australian Territory of Papua and New Guinea and about 40,000 from Indonesia (mostly from Ambon Island in the Moluccas). Most of the material has been processed and is being worked on by specialists. Valuable ecological data was obtained and recorded on standard collection data cards. (Author)
