Caption

Biting midge larva (Culicoides variipennis). Biting midges are small flies with painful bites. The larvae are found in a damp area, such as in rotten wood, compost, mud, stream banks, tree holes and water-holding plants. The females suck blood from vertebrates, and are major pests in late summer. They also are vectors for bluetongue disease, where a transmitted virus (Orbivirus sp.) causes fever, facial swellings and tongue cyanosis (blue colouring) in ruminants.
