What does Anopheles looks like?
Mosquitoes of the genus Anopheles are responsible for all transmission of malaria in mammals, including to humans. They are night-feeding mosquitoes, usually biting between dusk and dawn, though they may also be active during the day in heavily shaded environments.
Like all mosquitoes, Anopheles are usually found either as freshwater larvae, which prefer stagnant, still water, or flying adults, of which only the females feed on blood (the males exclusively feed on nectar). Anopheles larvae lie parallel to the surface of the water where they live (in contrast to Aedes and Culex larvae which hang at an angle), whereas the adults rest with their bodies at a 45 degree angle upwards (again in contrast to Aedes and Culex adults, which rest parallel to their resting surface).
