Nice action shot, Sean. Considering the importance of this family, we have not nearly enough images in BugGuide. Keep up the good work!

Thanks! My new plan of action is to go into the field with a camera and some vials. That way I can capture the mosquito for keying out after it is photographed. Hopefully then I can point out any ID features that might be evident in the photograph, and take further pictures under the scope.
