The surface micro-morphology of the antennal sensilla of Leptogenys chinensis worker shows presence of various types of sensilla, including trichodea curvata, sensilla basiconica and coelocapitular, which are used in chemical communication for social lives of Ants.
A comparative study of antennal microstructure in two species of damselflies Rhodischnura nursei and Lestes elatus
The antenna of Rhodischnura nursei and Lestes elatus revealed the presence of various mechanoand chemosensory sensilla, which may play a decisive role in olfaction, ability to perceive temperature, humidity or air speed that has been discussed.
MOUTHPARTS SENSILLA OF THE WORKER ANT LEPTOGENYS DENTILOBIS (HYMENOPTERA: FORMICIDAE)
The mouthparts of the worker cast in the ant, Leptogenys dentilobis are directed forward and adopted for biting and cutting type and Scanning electron microscopic (SEM) studies of the mouthparts revealed the presence of two major types of sensilla, i.e. sensilla trichoidea and sensilla tournais curvata.
