Caption

Light micrograph of a malaria mosquito (Anopheles sp.) with head appendages labelled. The Anopheles mosquito can be distinguished from other mosquitoes by their palps, which in this species are as long as the proboscis. The palps carry receptors which guide the mosquito to its host. The proboscis, composed of the labium and two labella, is used for feeding, and is the part responsible for the mosquito's sting.
