As a precursor to planned arboviral vector incrimination studies, an integrated systematics approach was adopted using morphology and DNA barcoding to examine the Culex fauna present in Turkey. The mitochondrial COI gene (658 bp) were sequenced from 185 specimens collected across 11 Turkish provinces, as well as from colony material.
