Abstract Maxillae and mandibles of males of 44 species of 12 mosquito genera and females of three autogenous genera and two partially autogenous species were examined under light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. The maxillae and mandibles of male mosquitoes are delicate, tape-like structures with lengths characterizing genera or higher level classification units. Five patterns are recognized: (A) long maxillae and mandibles with mandibles longer than maxillae in Anopheles; (B) long… Expand
The Hypopharynx of Male and Female Mosquitoes
TLDR
Compared the hypopharynx of males of several mosquito genera and, in addition, females of autogenous mosqui- toes, which are distinctly different structures from the labium. Expand
Enormously long, siphonate mouthparts of a new, oldest known spongillafly (Neuroptera, Sisyridae) from Burmese amber imply nectarivory or hematophagy
TLDR
Paradoxosisyra groehni is described from Upper Cretaceous Burmese amber as the oldest known sisyrid, and is assigned to the new subfamily Paradoxosisyrinae, which is characterized by enormously long siphonate mouthparts. Expand
The Earliest Fossil Mosquito (Diptera: Culicidae), in Mid-Cretaceous Burmese Amber
TLDR
The fossil has several plesiomorphic features, indicating that it is the sister group of all other fossil and extant Culicidae: a relatively short proboscis, the palpi extending beyond the apex of the proboscope, a clypeus with several setae, and the palpus without scales. Expand
Multitasking roles of mosquito labrum in oviposition and blood feeding
TLDR
The data suggest that 4EP reception by the labrum is important not only for oviposition decisions, but also for reducing probing and initiation of blood feeding. Expand
Fluid-Feeding Mouthparts
TLDR
The mouthparts of most specialized fluid-feeding insects consist of more or less elongated components forming a proboscis, which ingest fluid along a pressure gradient and occur in plant sap-sucking insects, blood feeders, and predaceous species. Expand
Feeding Site Selection by Frog-Biting Midges (Diptera: Corethrellidae) on Anuran Hosts
TLDR
This work investigates the feeding sites of species of frog-biting midges on túngara frogs, Engystomops pustulosus, and two species of treefrogs, Dendropsophus ebraccatus (Cope) and Dendrosophus microcephalus (Copes) and investigates the mouthparts of the midges. Expand
Toxic Effect of Blood Feeding in Male Mosquitoes
TLDR
It is described for the first time that Culex quinquefasciatus males feed on blood as well, and mortality is not affected by malnutrition (reduced sugar levels), but rather due to ingested blood. Expand
Eave and swarm collections prove effective for biased captures of male Anopheles gambiae mosquitoes in Uganda
TLDR
It is demonstrated that eave aspiration was an efficient and useful male mosquito collection method at the study sites and a potentially powerful aid for swarm location and MRR studies. Expand
Form, function and evolution of the mouthparts of blood-feeding Arthropoda.
This review compares the mouthparts and their modes of operation in blood-feeding Arthropoda which have medical relevance to humans. All possess piercing blood-sucking proboscides which exhibit thinExpand
Detection of Heparin in the Salivary Gland and Midgut of Aedes togoi
TLDR
Comparisons showed that female mosquitoes contained higher concentrations of heparin than male mosquitoes, and Heparin concentrations were higher in the midgut than in the salivary gland, indicating presence ofheparin in tissues of A. togoi. Expand

Mouthparts of male Aedes (Stegomyia) mosquitoes.
TLDR
Maxillae and mandibles distinctly shorter than the proboscis, together with their delicate structures and the large coefficient of variation, suggest that they exist only as vestigial structures. Expand
Phylogeny and classification of the Culicidae (Diptera)
TLDR
The results indicate that Aedini is a paraphyletic assemblage with respect to the Mansoniini, each of which is monophyletic in itself, and supports the monophyly of the subfamily Anophelinae and the tribes Culicini and Sabethini. Expand
NOTES ON THE PIERCING MOUTHPARTS OF THREE SPECIES OF MOSQUITOES (DIPTERA: CULICIDAE) VIEWED WITH THE SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPE
TLDR
The piercing mouthparts of three species of mosquitoes were examined with a stereoscan scanning electron microscope and the stylets of Wyeomyia smithii appear functional despite the belief that this species does not take a blood meal. Expand

TLDR
The morphology of the larval maxilla is discussed, and the following new terms are proposed: lacinial suture, lateral artis, mesostipes, palpostipes, pseudoartis and stipital sensorium. Expand

New Guinea Culicidae, a synopsis of vectors, pests and common species.
TLDR
Three main categories will be dealt with: Species known to be vectors of any human disease in the New Guinea territory; man-biting species without vector properties, merely annoying by their numbers (pest-mosquitoes); some species, not man- biting, but easily recognizable, wide-spread, and frequently present in mosquito collections.

TLDR
The rules by which females make food-choice decisions have been inadequately explored, and there still lack convincing evidence that sugar availability in nature varies sufficiently to affect mosquito populations. Expand
