The presence of Aedes j. japonicus in Florida is reported for the first time. Four adult females were collected by a Mosquito Magnet® X trap baited with pressurized CO2 in Okaloosa County, FL, in August 2012 and later identified as Ae. japonicus in 2014. Additional adult and larval specimens were collected during 2014–17 from Bay, Leon, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, or Walton counties, Florida. Notes are provided on the location, general habitats, and mosquito associates that may be found with Ae. japonicus in northwestern Florida. The role of Ae. japonicus in arbovirus transmission within Florida is currently unknown and should be further explored.
