By Stanley J. Carpenter, Walter J. Lacasse
Univ of California Pr, 1974
ISBN: 0520026381
Cite: 38727 with citation markup [cite:38727]
This book has some of the best diagrams of adult female mosquitoes that have been done. Another book out of press and sorely in need of reissue.
This book is a great companion to Darsie and Ward(1) and you usually find photocopies of the plates in evidence wherever adult mosquitoes are identified.
