The relationships of 42 Canadian species of the mosquito genus Aedes were investigated by numerotaxonomic techniques, using the method of matching coefficients. Good agreement with conventional taxonomic arrangements was found when (1) adult mosquitoes and (2) adults and larvae together were considered, but with (3) larvae alone, the agreement was unsatisfactory. The prospects of numerical methods in taxonomy are briefly considered.
