Caption

Aedes aegypti mosquito, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). The female mosquito feeds by using her modified proboscis (lower right) to pierce her host's skin and feed on its blood. Here, the stylet (grey) is partly unsheathed (brown labium loose due to being partially pushed upwards as stylet pierces skin), indicating that feeding is in progress. She uses the blood meal for the production of eggs. This species of mosquito is found throughout tropical Africa and in parts of South America. It is a vector for yellow fever, chikungunya, dengue fever and zika viruses. Also seen here are the mosquito's compound eyes (green).
