Abstract : Recent epidemics caused by different mosquito‐borne viruses underline the viral diversity associated to mosquitoes. However, beyond human viral pathogens, we know little on other viruses of the mosquito virome. This unexplored diversity probably influences vector competence and other aspects of the mosquito biology, as shown for the mosquito bacteriome. We have analysed the virome of Culex pipiens, a mosquito vector of important arboviruses like Rift Valley fever virus or West Nile fever virus. To this end, we have coupled a metagenomics approach with a large sampling campaign involving different countries and habitats around the Mediterranean basin. Our results show for the first time conserved patterns in virus diversity among mosquito populations, as well as specificities probably linked to different environmental conditions. The discovery of a ubiquitous group of viruses strongly supports the existence of a core virome in Culex pipiens that is likely to influence mosquito physiology.
