Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Morphological variants showing differences in length of median white scaled bands on the proboscises of female Aedes sollicitans (Cape May County, NJ) are described from F1 progeny of wild-caught mosquitoes. The length of the white-scaled band was classified into 5 categories: 1) large (0.53-0.60 mm), 2) medium (0.40-.47 mm), 3) small (0.27-0.33 mm), 4) very small (0.13-0.20 mm) band to a patch of scales on the lateral aspect, and 5) a black proboscis Misidentification of adults during surveillance can be avoided by using other species-specific characters for Ae. sollicitans lacking a white-scaled band on the proboscis.
