    • Description:
      The method of rapid identification of mosquitoes from light trap collections, employs a foot-operated device for focusing a dissecting microscope and an especially constructed trough for holding mosquitoes within the field of vision on the microscope stage. By the use of these aids, the identification of large numbers of mosquito specimens is greatly expedited. Both hands remain free for manipulations on the microscope stage, and the eyes need not be shifted constantly between the oculars of the microscope and the specimens being identified. The focusing device also has been found useful in the preparation of mounts of larvae and of male terminalia, and for other items requiring a considerable amount of manipulation under magnification.
