does anyone know how mosquitos produce that sound? I?ve seen many photos of them but never distinguished any special structure different from non-buzzing ones.
I supose it won?t be a way to call the female /male because in tabanidae males die soon after mating and females keep buzzing
thanks in advance

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
