Description:This 1978 photograph depicted an entomologic field technician who was in the process of investigating the presence of Culex salinarius mosquitoes known to thrive in this New Orleans, Louisiana salt marsh.
Culex salinarius larvae are able to survive in both fresh and brackish, i.e., fresh and salt water mix, where there is an abundance of decaying foliage. These mosquitoes are known vectors for the St. Louis encephalitis (SLE) virus. Anatomically, Culex salinarius closely resembles Culex tarsalis, however, the former is lighter brown, and has no white ring around its proboscis.
