Female mosquitos have an especially plain antennae. They also have unique mouthparts, as female proboscises are constructed in order to pierce human skin. The female ones are larger than males.
How do they bite?
When a mosquito lands, her senses allow her to find just the right spot to pierce he skin and access the blood. The mosquito then injects saliva that prevents clotting and numbs the area, so you don't feel the bite, allowing the mosquito to feed undisturbed.

The eye can detect movement.
