Investigation was made of the connection existing between the type of mosaic structure of the area and spatial distribution of mosquito fauna. It was found that communities of mosquitoes formed, in the microenvironments of the study areas, which differed as to numbers of mosquitoes, species composition, domination structure and relative activity. The character of the whole area imposed upon the communities the general proportions of the percentage of the dominanting species, the subdominant and accessory species: decrease of the participation of the dominant and the simultaneous increase of the participation of accessory species was observed in communities together with an increase in the degree of humidity and the mosaic structure of the whole area. Analysis was made of the seasonal variations in the structure of the mosquito communities, and it was found that penetration of the environment by mosquitoes in an area with a fine mosaic structure and considerable humidity depended on their numbers in such environments, In a dry area, unfavourable to mosquitoes, their penetration of the environments was the result of their numbers and activity. Depending on the type of area which determines the general activity of the mosquitoes, they are included primarily in the composition of the association of organisms of the forest herb layer or the undergrowth.
