Mosquitoes (Culicidae)

Mosquitoes are well-known insects due to their habit of sucking blood of humans and other vertebrates, but also because they are vectors of many serious diseases, like malaria. The Finnish mosquito fauna comprises about 40 species. This project aims to create DNA barcodes for the whole Finnish fauna to allow a reliable identification of species, many of which are alike.
