Aedes (Och.) atropalpus
- 1902d:292 (M, F; as Culex)
- Plummers Island, Montgomery Co., Maryland, United States (USNM)
Canada, Italy, United States
The larvae may be found throughout the summer in overflow pools in rockholes along mountain streams and occasionally in rain-filled rockholes well removed from the stream. The females of Aedes atropalpus are rather persistent biters and are frequently annoying near rocky streams. (Carpenter and LaCasse 1955:254)
