Orthopodomyia signifera (Coquillett, 1896)

This mosquito is found in North America, where it feeds mainly on birds, including chicken. It has been reported to carry the West Nile virus (CDC), but is not known to bite humans. O. signifera breeds mainly in tree holes, sometimes also in artificial containers (e.g. Yee et al., 2012).
