They would be galnipper mosquitoes.
According to Fox Orlando (the relevant sections are highlighted):
Mosquitoes 20 times the size of normal mosquitoes could invade Florida this summer, experts say. The female galinipper (Psorophora ciliata), a very large mosquito with hairy legs, feeds day and night and are common in Florida. Anthony Pelaez of the Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa warns, “And it’s mean, and it goes after people, and it bites, and it hurts.” Being bitten by a galinipper “feels like you’re being stabbed,” said Pelaez.
Sounds like it has all the qualifications to be a feminist. What further need have we of witnesses?
