Culiseta inornata is found throughout South Dakota. Females seem to prefer domesticated animals as the source of blood, but will also feed on humans during the active months of late spring. Cu. inornata females are very similar to Cx. Tarsalis in size, color, and abdominal shape. Cu. inornata do not have basal white rings on the tarsi and have bristles on the underside of the wing, near the base of the subcostal vein.
