Aedes aegypti, Ae. albopictus, Ae. japonicus japonicus, and Ae. triseriatus eggs are described with the aid of color images and images from scanning electron microscopy. All eggs were broadly cigar shaped with Ae. triseriatus and Ae. j japonicus eggs being dull or matte black, while Ae. albopictus and Ae. aegypti eggs were shiny jet black. Aedes triseriatus eggs were lighter in color and had a rougher appearance when compared to those of Ae. j. japonicus. Aedes albopictus and Ae. aegypti eggs can be differentiated by the distinct presence of micropylar collars in Ae. aegypti. Our results reduce the need to rear these mosquitoes, reducing labor and time while providing an accurate identification of the vector mosquitoes.
