These species are Aedes atlanticus, Aedes mitchellae, Aedes sollicitans, Aedes taeniorhynchus, Coquillettidia perturbans, and Culex nigripalpus.
In the southeast, these species include salt-water--marsh mosquitoes such as Aedes sollicitans, which are abundant in coastal areas, and fresh-water mosquitoes, such as Culex nigripalpus, Coquillitidea perturbans, and Aedes atlanticus. Heavy spring rains in northern Florida have led to exceptionally large populations of Culiseta melanura, the principal vector of EEE virus in the enzootic cycle, and floodwater species that potentially are epizootic vectors.
