Sabethes mosquitoes are primarily an arboreal genus, breeding in plant cavities.[1] The type species is Sabethes locuples, first described by Jean-Baptiste Robineau-Desvoidy in 1827.[2]

They are generally conspicuously ornamented with shining metallic scales.[3][4] The antennae of the females of some Sabethes species have long, dense, flagellar whorls resembling those of the males of most other genera of mosquitoes.[4]

Sabethes species mosquitoes occur in Central and South America.[5]

Medical Importance

Sabethes chloropterus has been found infected with St. Louis encephalitis virus and Ilhéus virus, and transmits yellow fever virus to humans.[1][6]
