I Like Her Bobbers – I Like His Pole couple shirt. A research team has just suggested changing the name of A. aegypti to Stegomyia aegypti,  but this proposal has not been widely recognized by the scientific community yet. This mosquito species can be easily identified by white stripes (so called midges), although some other species also have similar characteristics. This species is commonly found in the tropics,  sometimes found in the southern United States (such as the lower Florida region).
