Biology

Sabethes gymnothorax is a diurnal, canopy-dwelling mosquito.

Blood-seeking females approach potential hosts slowly and tend to alight on the nose or around the head.

Females oviposit while hovering over a water-filled container.

Larvae are predaceous - they attack and consume other mosquito larvae in the laboratory.

Larval development takes 4–5 weeks at 25°C under laboratory conditions.

Nothing else is known about the biology of this species.
