It’s very nearly Friday, and I am late in answering the mystery of the squashed mosquito. What was it?
10 points to Jason C for his correct answer of Psorophora ciliata. I’m only 80% confident that P. ciliata is the right species, so I am also awarding 5 points to Catherine Nalen for the congener Psorophora howardii. I don’t think the latter is quite hairy enough but I can’t rule it out.
