Ovipositions from more than 28,000 isolated females, representing 30 species of anopheline mosquitoes collected in Brazil, were studied, and the eggs of nine species described for the first time. A key to the eggs of these 30 species based primarily on the floats, frills, and pattern of exochorion is presented and illustrated by camera lucida drawings of typical specimens of each species. Some commonly encountered varieties of several species are also described and illustrated.
