Our analysis of head segmentation in the locust embryo reveals that the labrum is not apical as often interpreted but constitutes the topologically fused appendicular pair of appendages of the third head metamere. Using molecular, immunocytochemical and retrograde axonal staining methods we show that this metamere, the intercalary segment, is innervated by(More)
The clypeo-labrum, or upper lip, of insects is intimately involved in feeding behavior and is accordingly endowed with a rich sensory apparatus. In the present study we map the temporal appearance of all major clusters of sensory cells on this structure in the locust during the first half of embryogenesis. The identities of these sensory cell clusters were(More)
In this paper, we propose an ontogeny for previously identified cells from the median domain in the midline of the embryonic brain of the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria. The so-called lateral cells (LCs) are characteristically located laterally within the median domain at its border with the protocerebral hemispheres. The LC occurs singly and can be(More)
