Female mosquito, SEM

Female mosquito. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the underside of an unidentified female mosquito (family Culicidae). The large compound eyes (pink) dominate the head. The hairy antennae branch off the head from between the eyes, pointing upwards. The underside of the body (lower left) is seen with its six legs. A wing is at lower right. The long proboscis (attached to the head at upper centre and running to the right) is used by the female to feed on mammalian blood. Several species of mosquito are vectors for human diseases, including malaria and yellow fever. Magnification: x70 at 6x7cm size
