Abstract

In St. Lawrence County, New York State, in 1964-65, 7, 940 Culicids, Ceratopo-gonids, Simuliids and Tabanids were tested in 769 pools for evidence of virus infection. One of 51 pools of Aedes cinereus Mg. yielded a virus of the California encephalitis complex of a type different from the prototype strain. Antibodies neutralizing California encephalitis virus were found in serum from man, cattle and wild animals in 11 counties of New York.
