PHIL Image 6765
 
ID#:6765
Description:Caption:
This female Anopheles freeborni is taking a blood meal from a human host by pumping the ingested blood through her “labrum”, which is visible here as a thin red, “needle-like” structure between the mosquito’s head and the host’s skin. Note her blood-filled, distended abdomen, which is so full that clear, fluid is spilling from the anus at the abdominal tip in order to make room for still more ingested blood. A. freeborni is a known malarial vector.
