ABSTRACT. The active investigation of bloodsucking Diptera in the territory of Krasnoyarskii Krai commenced in the 1960–1970s. However, the results were usually fragmentary and related to agriculture, and published in little known works, difficult of access; furthermore, methods used by some researchers were different to current standards. The present work is an attempt to summarize the scattered literature data and author’s observations on the fauna and ecology of mosquitoes of the northern territories of Krasnoyarskii Krai. An analysis of species composition, landscape distribution, and relative abundance of mosquitoes, as well as the dynamics of their daily activity in different natural zones of the northern part of Krasnoyarskii Krai are provided.
KEY WORDS: bloodsucking Diptera, mosquitoes, species composition, landscape, population.
