  1. aAnnotations from Hill et al. [25], Nene et al. [13] and Arensburger et al. [14]. Revised opsin annotations were produced using the AaegL1.2, AgamP3.5 and Cpip1.2 gene sets from VectorBase; bExpression evidence for Ae. aegypti, An. gambiae and Cx. quinquefasciatus obtained from PCR or RT-PCR data (Additional file 1: Table S3), ESTs (Additional file 1: Table S2), Microarrays [40,41,42], RNAseq [43, 53] and mass spectrometry [44,45,46]; p, peptide evidence; t, transcript evidence; -, absence of transcript or peptide evidence; cIndicates incomplete gene model; N.A. not available
