Caption:
This photograph depicts four Anopheles quadrimaculatus mosquito larvae. Anopheles spp. larvae breath by using special organs known as spiracles, located on their abdomen. Larvae shed their skin, known as molting, 4-times during their larval stage before becoming pupae. Larvae live in water, and develop into pupae in about 4–10 days.
