Abstract : The comparative study of the antennal chemoreceptors in the Culex pipiens complex showed that there is a progressive reduction in the numbers of long pointed receptors (Al) from fatigans (anthropophilic) through pipiens (ornithophilic) to molestus (autogenous). An electrophysiological investigation was made of the distal labral receptors of the mosquito Aedes aegypti. The work consisted mainly of developing a technique for stimulating these receptors and recording the resulting electrical phenomena.
