This image depicts numbers of Culex sp. mosquito larvae, collected from standing water in an Atlanta, Georgia residential area. Mosquito larvae of most species have a prominent breathing siphon. The larvae rest suspended diagonally from the water surface with the end of the siphon tube penetrating its surface, enabling the larvae to access their air supply.
