A research study was conducted to determine the species composition, relative abundance and seasonal variation of mosquito fauna of District Upper Dir in 2014. The mosquito species recorded were Culex quinquefacitus, Culex mimeticus, Culex theileri, Anopheles maculates, Anopheles stephensi, Anopheles annularis, Aedes albopictus, Aedes shortii and Culiseta longiareolata. The results revealed that at Brawal Cx. quinquefacitus dominated the other species (30.21%) while Ae. shortii was least abundant (3.24%). At Dir city, Cx. mimeticus was highly abundant (27.87%) while Ae. shortii was least abundant (3.24%). At Sheringal Cx. quinquefacitus dominated (26.25%) while Cu. longiareolata least abundant (0.79%). At Warai An. maculates was highly abundant (32.86%) while Ae. albopictus least abundant (3.09%). The present results might be helpful in devising pest management techniques against the mosquito species of District Dir Upper.
