There are direct relationships between the behavioral mechanisms and sensilla. [] Key Method The clavate antenna comprised the scape, pedicel, and nine segment flagellomeres and had six types of sensilla, including two subtypes of sensilla chaetica (SC), three subtypes of sensilla basiconica (SB) and sensilla trichodea (ST), and one type of sensilla cavity, sensilla styloconica, and Böhm bristles (BB). The chewing mouthparts of O. colon consist of the labrum, mandible, maxillae, labium, and hypopharynx and…

The sensilla on head , antenna and mouth parts in Aelia rostrata Boh . ( Hemiptera , Pentatomidae ) : A scanning electron microscopical study

The sensilla who act as thermohygroreceptor, chemoreceptor, or mechanoreceptor are the main sensory structures of insects and 4 major types of sensilla with different diameters and cone-shaped protrusions have been identified.

A scanning electron microscope study of the sensilla on antenna and mouthparts in Eurygaster testudinaria (Geoffroy, 1785)

The sensilla on the mouth parts and antennae of E. testudinaria were investigated by using scanning electron microscope technique and four types of sensilla were identified such as sensilla basiconica, peg-like sensilla, sensilla trichodea, and sensilla campaniformia were identified.

First description and comparison of the morphological and ultramicro characteristics of the antennal sensilla of two fir longhorn beetles

The observed difference in the sensillum distribution and function between the two fir longhorn beetles will greatly facilitate the design of better semiochemical control methods of these insect pests.

Morphology and Distribution of the Antennal Sensillia of the Leaf Beetle, Ambrostoma quadriimpressum (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)

ABSTRACT The leaf beetle, Ambrostoma quadriimpressum Motschulsky (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) is the predominant pest of elms (Rosales: Ulmaceae) in China, Russia, and elsewhere in northesatern Asia,

Sensilla on antennae and mouthparts of adult spruce bark beetle Ips typographus (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)

The results provide a theoretical basis for further studies on the olfactory and feeding behaviors and electrophysiology of adult I. typographus.

Ultrastructure of sensilla on the maxillary and labial palps of the adult Xylotrechus grayii (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)

There are no significant sexual differences in sensilla types, characteristics, distribution, and quantity in the maxillary or labial palps of X. grayii, except for the number of SC sensilla on themaxillary palp.

Scanning Electron Microscope Study of Antennae and Mouthparts in the Pollen-Beetle Meligethes (Odonthogethes) chinensis (Coleoptera: Nitidulidae: Meligethinae)

The fine morphology of sensilla on the antennae and mouthparts of the pollen-beetle Meligethes (Odonthogethes) chinensis, a common Chinese species associated with flowers of Rosaceae, is observed and described for the first time.

Characterization of the complete mitochondrial genome of Omosita colon (Coleoptera: Nitidulidae)

This study provides genomic data for mitogenome library of the genus Omosita to investigate evolutionary and systematic studies and provides a molecular basis to infer the postmortem interval (PMImin) with O. colon.



Antennal Sensilla of the Click Beetle, Melanotus cribricollis (Coleoptera: Elateridae)

The typology, number, morphology and placement of antennal sensilla of click beetle (Melanotus cribricollis Faldermann) were studied using a scanning electron microscopy and the possible functions of the above sensilla types were discussed in light of the morphology, number and distribution of sensilla.

Antennal sensilla of the ground beetle Platynus dorsalis (Pontoppidan, 1763) (Coleoptera, carabidae)

The typology, number, and distribution pattern of antennal sensilla of the ground beetle Platynus dorsalis (Pontoppidan) were studied using scanning electron microscopy, suggesting that nocturnally active P. dorsalis is much more sensitive to odours perceived by these sensilla than B. lampros with diurnal activity and hunting predominantly by sight.

Ultrastructural observations on antennal sensilla of Cnaphalocrocis medinalis (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)

The morphology and ultrastructure of the antennal sensilla of Cnaphalocrocis medinalis was studied by scanning and transmission electron microscopic techniques to provide direct morphological evidence that antennae possess structures that can play a role in finding mates and locating host plants.

Sensilla on maxillary and labial palps in a helicophagous ground beetle larva (Coleoptera, Carabidae)

It is evident thatiotic components such as predation may be important indetermining population size, spatial distribution and activity of carabid beetles, and their morphological adaptations are subsequent upon the ability to detect their prey.

Observation of Sensilla on the Cephalic Appendages of Nadezhdiella cantori Using a Scanning Electron Microscope

Scanning electronic microscopy was used in this work to investigate the type and number of sensilla on the cephalic appendages of the longhorn beetle and their distribution.
