Culex \Cu"lex\, n. [L., a gnat.] (Zo["o]l.)
A genus of mosquitoes of the family Culicidae, to which
most of the North American species belong. Some members of
this genus are exceedingly annoying, as Culex sollicitans,
which breeds in enormous numbers in the salt marshes of the
Atlantic coast, and Culex pipiens, the common house
mosquito, breeding very widely in the fresh waters of North
America. (For characters distinguishing these from the
malaria mosquitoes, see Anopheles, above). The yellow-fever
mosquito is now placed in another genus, Stegomyia.
Note: This genus formerly (ca. 1900) included the gnat as
well as the mosquito.
