American rock pool mosquito (Aedes atropalpus) anjoru Wed, 15 Jul 2020 12:28:22 +0000

this change was not fully vetted and current consensus is that Aedes is restored as genus, unless there is a taxonomic reason to change it. See here:

Not Resolved



I alerted the curator who made the change, it is likely best that they manage discussion on this.

@anjoru @cmcheatle Thanks for the alert. I'm in the process of changing the mosquito taxonomy in iNat from Ochlerotatus back into Aedes but in order to do so, I needed to merge duplicate taxon pages from Aedes into Ochlerotatus, which is now taxonomically classified as a subgenus of Aedes in iNat. I need to make a few more changes so that the binomial name reflects the changes, so expect all Ochlerotatus species to revert to Aedes here in a while.
