Since Ross' interesting observation that the abdomen of an adult anopheline when at rest forms an angle with the surface, while that of a culicine roughly parallels it, the statement, in the light of subsequent experience of many workers, has taken on axiomatic significance. To be sure this condition holds apparently in most cases. At least two exceptions to this generalization however, are known for anophelines. James and Liston mentioned in India as resting in a Culex-like attitude. A similar resting position is taken by according to Darling.

The two species of known from Haiti both rest in the anopheline manner. Nevertheless merely a glance suffices to distinguish one from the other. falls into the more or less orthodox type, that is, the body projects at about a 45° angle from a vertical surface on which the insect is resting.
