Culex declarator Dyar & Knab, 1906
This mosquito is found in Central and South America, from the southern parts of the U.S. until Argentina. It feeds mainly on birds, but can also bite mammals and humans. C. declarator has been reported to carry several viruses, like the St. Louis encephalitis virus. The adults are similar to Culex nigripalpus, but can be distinguished by several features like a long, pale area on the lower surface of the proboscis.
