In 2016, the Luxembourg National Natural History Museum started a survey on mosquito species in Luxembourg. Between July and October mosquitoes have been trapped on a weekly basis at 10 sites throughout the country, in co-operation with local and regional partner organizations and private individuals.
On June 14th and 15th 2017, Mosquito specialist Dr Francis Schaffner from the University of Zurich identified the 2016 catches at the Museum.
182 mosquitoes were caught during 90 catches from 10 sites.
|Culex pipiens / torrentium (9 out of 10 sites)
|Anopheles plumbeus (Kockelscheuer, Steinsel)
|Culiseta annulata (Remerschen)
|Coquillettidia richiardii (Remerschen)
|Aedes vexans (Kockelscheuer)
|Aedes cinereus (Kockelscheuer)||1|
