Oryctes : France : Villeneuve-d'Ascq : 59650 : 20/06/2022
Altitude : 20 m - Taille : 9 à 10 mm
Réf. : 307729

I found this male of Culicidae on the edge of a little pool in Villeneuve d'Ascq (North of France) the 20th of june, this year. It was determined as genus Ochlerotatus. Are you agree whis that ? And it is just a suggestion but : could it be species sticticus as it was proposed on LMDI by seeing the colour of tarsus one and two ?
Thank you in advance for your help.

The unpatterned scutum and thin light bands on the tarsomeres suggests Aedes vexans.

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
