Abstract : The annual report covers all information on taxonomic survey of Korean mosquitos conducted intensively and extensively through-out South Korea during the past one year, from July 1972 to June 1973. The primary concern of this project is to determine the Korean mosquito fauna, to extend a key to the Korean species, and to prepare some specimens of each species for permanent deposit. The another concern is to provide the department of entomology of the 406th medical laboratory with some specimens of 19 rare species needed, when collected, for their enlarged edition of the Mosquito fauna of Japan and Korea. The larval collections were mainly carried out to obtain good specimens together with larval and pupal skins by using individual rearing in the laboratory. For adults, human biting, animal biting, resting place, dry ice and light trap collections were made to get some information about the rare species missing from larval collection. However, the materials caught by the methods mentioned above were not usually available for permanent mounting. (Author)
