Several years ago in Florida, I was bitten one evening by a mosquito. I promptly swatted her and fed the remains to hungry Pheidole ants.

We do a lot of ant mysteries, so let’s mix it up this week and go for the fly instead. So: what is the mosquito?

I will award points to the first person to correctly pick the genus (5 pts) and species (5 pts).

The cumulative points winner for the month of January will take home their choice of 1) any 8×10-sized print from my photo galleries, or 2) a guest post here on Myrmecos.
