most probably a C. pipiens based on my previous experience and took a similar looking mosquito colony to lab and did confirm it there molecularly to be C. pipiens.

Moved from Mosquitoes.

Culex sp.
I suspect this one is a Culex salinarius based on the extent of buffy scales on the last abdominal terga segment, but a without a proper view, it would be best left at genus level.

This can be moved to the Culex taxon page.
