Abstract: Adults of Culex judaicus were described by Edwards in 1926. However, the larva of this species has not yet been described and it was deemed useful to describe details of the larva and compare it with the larva of Cx. martinii, both species that occur in northern Israel. Some comparisons are made between the larva and pupa of Cx. judaicus and the larva and pupa of Cx. europaeus, which was described from Portugal in 2003.
