PHIL Image 6908

ID#:6908
Description:This illustration depicts a Uranotaenia sapphirina mosquito from a lateral view, and an inset of one of its wings from a superior perspective detailing its venation pattern.

The “Sapphire-lined mosquito”, Uranotaenia sapphirina, get its name due to the iridescent sapphire-blue markings displayed on its head and thoracic regions. This mosquito seems to feed exclusively on amphibians and reptiles, but not on human beings. However, this mosquito has been found amongst mosquito pools from which West Nile virus, and Eastern Equine Encephalitis virus have been isolated.
