Abstract

Male specimens of Aedes stenostylus Cornel, Kowo & Mayi sp. nov. and Aedes leptolabis ssp. talangayensis Cornel, Kowo & Mayi sp. nov. are described. They were collected mainly by sweep netting through forest floor vegetation in partially logged areas and in the surrounding pristine forest (Talangaye Forest) in the Nguti Subdivision in the south-west region of Cameroon. An updated key of the Aedimorphus “Domesticus group” species, based on the morphology of the male genitalia is provided.
