The dark brown Anopheles Quadrimaculatus (the primary offender in the Eastern United States) is recognizable by long palpi, or tasting organs, which are almost the same length as its proboscis, or mouthparts. It rests on surfaces diagonally, with its head down and abdomen jutting into the air. They mostly feed in the evening and prefer to lay eggs in freshwater ponds, streams and lakes.
