Caption: Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of a female of the mosquito species Anopheles gambiae. The females of this species are carriers of the malaria parasite, Plasmodium sp. The SEM shows clearly the mosquito's compound eyes. The female is distinguished from the male of the species by the relative sparseness of the bristles on her antennae. Magnification: x40 at 35mm size, x264 at 8x10-inch size.
