         Mosquitoes are almost never found in lotic waters but the can be abundant in adjacent wetlands or backwaters if cut off from the current.  Rempel (1950 and 1953) studied the larvae and adults of western Candian mosquitoes in response to the the encephalomyelitis  outbreak of 1941, and a study of prairie species was considered to be urgent.  He reviews the biology and distribution and gives keys to adults and larvae of six genera and 46 species from western Canada (Anopheles - 4 species, Mansonia-one species, Wyeomyia  – one species, Culiseta - 5 species, Culex   four species, and Aedes  -31 species).
