New Sabethes (Diptera: Culicidae) species records for Ecuador, from Colonso-Chalupas biological reserve, province of Napo (Amazon)

JC Navarro, S Enríquez, P Duque, Y Campaña, W Benítez-Ortiz

Two new records of Sabethes mosquitoes (Culicidae: Nematocera) are reported for Ecuador with the respective extension of their geographical distribution in the Neotropics: Sabethes intermedius Lutz and Sabethes soperi Lane & Cerqueira, from the provinces of Napo (Amazon) into the Natural Reserve of Colonso-Chalupas at 1,200 m altitude, beside Tena city, Ecuador. Both species are considered as potential vectors of sylvatic Yellow Fever virus and Mayaro virus. Information on collection locality and date, biogeographical region and climate, number of specimens deposited, collectors and the current distribution are included for each species. With these records, the alpha diversity of Culicidae of Ecuador is estimated for 240 species.
