Aedes rusticus (Rossi, 1790)
Mosquitoes have always been a rather neglected aspect of Nottinghamshire's Dipterous fauna and there are currently very few records of any species. Aedes rusticus is widely distributed, though with few records from Scotland and Wales. It breeds in temporary woodland pools, usually lined with dead leaves and is a regularly encountered species which we have found bites profusely in some woodlands. The one illustrated, was recorded at Wellow Park in June 2018.
