How can we identify whether the mosquito :mosquito: is culex or anopheles or some other?

Could there be a way to monitor mosquito populations similar to say - pollution or air quality?

Patterns over time could lead to useful insights. I wonder if BMC has any existing monitoring system.

with the stripes on the body of the mosquito if there is a lyre like structure on the thorax region it is a aedes mosquito
if the mosquito sits on 45 degree it anopheles mosquito
culex mosquito is basically plain brownish mosquito
