Caption

Head of malaria mosquito. Coloured light micro- graph of the head and mouthparts of the female mosquito Anopheles sp. This mosquito is a carrier of the parasite Plasmodium sp., that causes malaria. A large dark compound eye is seen on the head (at right); a pair of antennae are at top; haired mouthparts are visible (centre) which include a tube-like proboscis with which the mosquito sucks blood. Only females of Anopheles feed on human blood and carry malaria. While the mosquito feeds, the malaria parasite infects the human bloodstream. Symptoms of malaria include shaking, chills and fever. Magnification: unknown.
