Aedes taeniorhynchus (Wiedemann, 1821) - (black salt marsh mosquito)

This mosquito is a salt and brackish water species, widely distributed in coastal areas of the Americas. It bites a variety of vertebrates, but prefers mammals and reptiles over birds in some areas. The host range depends on their availability, with some surveys showing around 90% of the hosts being humans (e.g. Asigau et al., 2019). It is a vector of the Venezuelan equine encephalitis (VEE) virus.
