<p>With few exceptions, systematic large-scale field studies on the mosquito fauna have not been performed in Germany for decades. Thus, up-to-date data on the occurrence and distribution of the indigenous mosquito species are lacking. In particular, there is no information on whether once rare and restrictively occurring species are still present. Here we describe the recent finding of four Culiseta species rarely encountered in Germany: Cs. alaskaensis, Cs. glaphyroptera and Cs. ochroptera, which have always been considered endemic but were seldom found and last reported a long time ago, and Cs. longiareolata, which has recently been found to have established in southern Germany.</p>
