Mosquitoes are well-known as pests and disease vectors in many parts of the world. Although considerable amount of biological knowledge has accumulated concerning these species, relatively few are known cytologically. Among the important earlier contributions to this field are those of Kitzmiller and Frizzi (1954), Breland (1960, 1961), Rai and Craig (1961) and Rai (1961, 1963). However, the tropical mosquitoes, especially the oriental species are almost neglected cytogenetically. For a review of the pertinent literature on the genetics and cytogenetics of mosquitoes, refer Kitzmiller (1953, 1963, 1967). A few papers have appeared which reveal only a beginning in the field of cyto logical investigations of oriental anophelines (Rishikesh 1955, 1959, Chowdaiah et al. 1967, 1968). The present paper is an attempt to begin a comparative karyotype studies, describing the morphology of the mitotic chromosome comple ments and to evaluate their importance.
