The super-sized mosquito belongs to the Holorusa mikado species, the largest mosquito family in the world.
With a five cm long body and a wing span of 11.15cm, the mosquito is ten times longer than an average mosquito.
The insect is also a third longer than the average holorusia mikado species.
Sun News UK reports that Zhao Li, curator of the Insect Museum of West China discovered the giant mosquito last August in Qincheng Mountain, within the Sichuan province.
But he wanted to take his time and confirm that it really was the largest mosquito in the world before revealing the staggering discovery.
He told South China Morning Post:
The mosquito is set to go on display at the museum in China next month.
This is not the first time Zhao has caught a supersized insect. Last year he found a female stick insect measuring 25 inches long, SunNews UK reports.
