Caption: Culex mosquito. A female Northern House mosquito Culex pipiens, seen feeding on human blood. The mosquito is standing on the surface of human skin. The abdomen of the mosquito which has become coloured red is engorged with its blood meal, and the long proboscis of Culex is clearly visible puncturing the skin. Only the female mosquito bites; the males are harmless.
