In Lithobius forficatus, the removal of the two antennae or of 10-15 walking legs and the ecdysteroid supply induces ecdysis. The effects of these experiments has been studied on the secretory cycle of the cerebral glands; it must be reminded that these neurohaemal organs exert a moderating role on moulting. The removal of the antennae leads to injuries in… CONTINUE READING
