It was shown by electron microscopy that antennae of maleAnopheles stephensi have the same types of sensory receptors as the females, with sunken pegs (sensilla ampullacea and sensilla coeloconica), surface pegs (sensilla basiconica), hairs (sensilla trichodea), bristles and fibrillae (sensilla chaetica), and scolopidia in the Johnston's organ. Compared with the female, the male mosquito has fewer than half of the sensory cells in the flagellum, but many more in the Johnston's organ. The… CONTINUE READING
