Caption

Culex mosquito male. Light micrograph of a male mosquito (Culex pipiens). The female rarely bites humans, while the male sucks juices from plants with a piercing stylet between its long hairy maxillary palps. Other differences are bushy antennae and rear genitalia with claspers in the male. Magnification: x3 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
