XVIII.—On a Possible Stridulating Organ in the Mosquito. (Anopheles maculipennis, Meig.)

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  06 July 2012

Extract

At the base of the wings of Anopheles maculipennis, Meig, is a small quadrilateral area (fig. 2, Plate) which has escaped the notice of the systematist, since the nervures in which he is interested lie almost entirely beyond the area in question, and which has escaped the notice of the morphologist, because it presents to him but a confused outline of meaningless ridges and intervening depressions of no structural importance. If, however, the well-preserved wing of a mosquito, whilst still attached to the thorax, be examined, a very curious apparatus can be made out, lying across the centre of the said quadrilateral area which is bounded posteriorly by the alula. This apparatus lies at about equal distances from the anterior and the posterior edge of the wing, and divides the base of the wings roughly into two halves.
