Hi, I've found this female with a conspicous pattern on thorax, dark legs, length approx. 10 mm in October 2020 in my cellar.
I do now think of Culiseta glaphyroptera - can this be confirmed, respectively identified?
Thanks for your comments!

Cs. glaphyroptera has a more marked pattern on the thorax. This looks like Culex pipiens to me (particularly with those bright green eyes)

Thank you very much Tony! I've saved it as Culex first but after staring at it for more than one year the pattern increased...

The females of Culex pipiens and Culex torrentium can not be separated from this angle, and sometimes not from any angle.

Thank you very much, Anders. Another lateral view is not sharp enough, too, to see if prealar- and postspiracular-scales are present or not.

I agree, I would not identify this to species. Cx. pipiens/torrentium.
