Notes:
  • Note A - The 2n=6 chromosome number is conserved in the entire family Culicidae, except in Chagasia bathana which has 2n=8.
  • Note B - 2 for females, males are haploid i.e. have 1. Other ant species have more chromosomes.
  • Note C - Some sources say sub-species differ with 38, 54, and even 56 chromosomes
