    An update on the mosquito-borne flaviviruses is given. Special emphasis is placed on viruses which cause diseases in animals, and viruses for which no pathogenicity has been proven yet. Several recent examples (Usutu virus and lineage-2 West Nile virus in central Europe, Zika virus in Micronesia) have shown that sources providing information on such scientifically largely neglected viruses are valuable tools for scientists and public health officials having to deal with such disease emergences. Furthermore the effects of global warming will lead to introduction of competent mosquito vectors into temperate climate zones and will increase efficiency of viral replication in less competent vector species. This, supported by rising global travel and trade activities, will facilitate introduction and permanent establishment of mosquitoborne viruses, some of which may become of public health or veterinary concern, into novel environments, e.g. industrialized countries worldwide.
