New records of mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) are reported for Ecuador with the extension of their geographical distribution in South America: Aedes (Howardina) fulvithorax (Lutz) in a bromeliad and Culex (Culex) stenolepis Dyar & Knab in a ground pool with vegetation, in the province of Napo (Amazon) and the crater of the volcano Pululaha (Province of Pichincha) respectively. Information on collection localities, dates, biogeographical region, climate, number of specimens deposited, collectors, and current distribution is included for each species. With these records, the alpha diversity of the Culicidae of Ecuador is estimated at 242 species.
