Caption

Anopheles mosquito. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a female Anopheles gambiae mosquito. This view shows the mosquito's mouthparts and antennae, protruding from its head. The large compound eyes (green) are also visible. The mouthparts include the proboscis (lower right). This proboscis is used to feed on blood, such as that of humans. A. gambiae is found in Africa, where it is a vector for the Plasmodium protozoa that causes malaria. Magnification: x80 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
