Caption: Mosquito larva. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an unidentified mosquito larva (family Culicidae). The larva hatches and lives in water until it attains its adult form. It breathes air through its siphon tube (upper left), which it anchors to the water's surface. The larva feeds on algae and other detritus suspended in the water. Magnification unknown.
