Description:This illustration depicts a Deinocerites sp., “Crabhole mosquito” from a lateral view, and an inset of its head region revealing the morphologic details of its antennae.
The “Crabhole mosquito”, Deinocerites sp., is named for its predilection of crabholes as resting places, i.e., upper regions of a burrow, and nesting sites, i.e., lower levels of a burrow. The first flagellar segment of its antennae is noticeably longer than any of the successive segments, and overall, the antennae are longer than its proboscis.
