In reviewing this again, I remembered something - male mosquitoes have longer palps than the females! So, while this is a male, it is probably NOT Anopheles. I will investigate mosquitoes species in your area to see if I can come up with a genus.
Hi Christine. I have a similar spotting - http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/159.... Could my spotting be that of Anopheles sp. as well? Thanks!!
This is a male Anopheles mosquito because the palps are as long as the proboscis. I know it is male because the antennae are very fluffy. Males don't take bloodmeals, good news for you ;).
Thanks, ceherzog.That's not my arm, Alice. It's a granite tile in our kitchen. It does kinda look like skin though. :)
Were you letting the Mosquito's suck on your arm?!
Very interesting shots!
