Studies on Culicoides species (Latreille, Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) of Nigeria — XI. Species caught around horse stables. Species of Culicoides feeding on horses were investigated in Ibadan and Ilorin in the southwestern part of Nigeria using light, sticky and emergence by: 1. The Ceratopogonidae form a family of small nematocerous flies, usually less than 3 or 4 mm in length. They are closely related to the Chironomidae, the non-biting midges, but can be distinguished from them by the presence of biting mouthparts in the female, Cited by: Species of Culicoides feeding on horses were investigated in Ibadan and Ilorin in the southwestern part of Nigeria using light, sticky and emergence traps. A total of Culicoides consisting of 22 species were caught over a period of 22 months. Culicoides quinquelineatus was the most numerous, followed by C. imicola. The greatest proportion of Culicoides was caught with the sticky traps Cited by: 1. The vast majority of taxonomic studies of Culicoides rely on morphological analyses although in the nearly thirty years since the classification of the Culicoides genus was described as being in disarray (Jones et al., ), a substantial decline in the availability of ‘classical’ morphological taxonomic expertise and infrastructure has by:

The genus Culicoides Latreille is represented by described species in the Afrotropical Region; of these, approximately 10 % are plain-wing species, the wing lacking a distinctive pattern of pale and dark spots. This plain-wing sector includes C. walkeri Boorman which, till now, has been known only in the female, based on nine specimens fromKenya. The hitherto unknown male of C. walkeri is.

The genus Culicoides Latreille is a group of blood sucking ceratopogonids which is the largest genus in the family, comprising of more than 1, species in the world, and out of which about species are found in Africa south of the Sahara (Wirth et al, ). Culicoides biting midges are potential vectors of protozoa and Nematoda.
