Traps designed primarily to attract adult mosquitoes were set at two different heights (ground level and 10 m) in three sites in the Wellington and Auckland regions; one trap in an urban area and two in native forest environments. In all, 405 adult Diptera were caught, comprising 13 families and approximately 55 taxa, many of which were represented by one specimen each. These data provided indications, in some taxa, of vertical stratification, with some found only at ground level or only in the canopy.
