Aedes aegypti, copyright Muhammad Mahdi Karim.

Belongs within: Culicidae.

Aedes is a cosmopolitan genus of mosquitoes including the vectors of such diseases as dengue fever and Ross River virus. The genus is polymorphic and divided into numerous subgenera, many of which have sometimes been treated as separate genera. One of the largest of these is Ochlerotatus whose members have a head with numerous erect scales, a patch of appressed scales on the lower prealar area, and long and slender cerci associated with a small eighth sternite (Liehne 1991).

Characters (from Liehne 1991): Palps generally short, less than 0.25× length proboscis. Upright forked scales on vertex numerous. Spiracular bristles absent, postspiracular bristles always present. Tarsal claws usually toothed, pulvilli absent. Wing membrane with distinct microtrichia. Larva with siphon usually short; seta 1-S a single pair of tufts, never inserted at base of siphon; saddle rarely complete ring.
