Description:

A 2001 Natural History article detailing the finding that the London Underground harbored a variety of the above ground, daytime inhabiting Culex pipiens dubbed 'molestus'. Along with the obvious differences in behavior (Culex pipiens is generally a bird biter, but without underground birds the molestus variety has been voraciously biting people) geneticists have been able to use molecular techniques to differentiate, and suggest novel evolution for the two groups.
