This illustration reveals the morphologic differences in the mouthparts and antennae between an Anopheles sp. male mosquito, and that of a male Culex sp. The Anopheles sp. male possesses more robust palpi, tipped with paddle-like ends, whereas, the palpi of the Culex sp. male are considerably slimmer. The Anopheles’ antennae are larger, sporting a greater amount of sensorial setae than its Culex counterpart, as well as a longer proboscis.
