Caption: Aedes aegypti mosquito larva. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of a Aedes aegypti mosquito larva, showing its mouthparts (centre). This species of mosquito is found throughout tropical Africa and parts of South America. The female feeds on human blood and is a vector for the transmission of yellow fever, Chikungunya, Dengue fever and zika viruses to humans. However, the male is harmless, feeding only on nectar. Magnification: x80, when printed 10 cm wide.
