Culex mosquito, SEM
Culex mosquito. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a Culex sp. mosquito. The mosquito's head is dominated by its large compound eyes (brown spheres). Sprouting from between its eyes are the antennae, which are sensory organs covered in fine hairs. The long thin proboscis protruding from the bottom of the head is used for feeding. Only female mosquitoes feed on blood. Mosquitoes have six long jointed legs. Several Culex species are vectors for human diseases, including West Nile virus and Japanese encephalitis.
