SummaryLight and scanning electron microscopic investigations were carried out to map the topography, number, size and configuration of all campaniform sensilla in the exoskeleton of the blowfly Calliphora vicina. We counted a total of about 1,200 campaniform sensilla; sexual dimorphism was not found. The shape, i.e. cap and collar, of most campaniform sensilla is elliptical; only 24 circular sensilla were found. The occurrence of campaniform sensilla is limited to the antennae (pedicels), legs… 

Campaniform sensilla of Calliphora vicina (Insecta, Diptera)

A classification scheme of campaniform sensilla using morphological criteria was developed based on variations of the two most important outer structural elements, the “cuticular cap” and the ”cuticular collar”, which resulted in a classification ofCampaniform Sensilla into 24 types.

Scanning electron microscopy analysis of the antennal sensilla in the rare saproxylic beetle Elater ferrugineus (Coleoptera: Elateridae)

This work provides the first morphological analysis (both at gross and fine level) of the antennal structures in the genus Elater (Coleoptera, Elateridae) and found a marked sexual dimorphism was found at bothgross and fine scale.

Morphological study of the antennal sensilla in Gerromorpha (Insecta: Hemiptera: Heteroptera)

Several subtypes of sensilla are described, differentiated by number, location and type of sensillum characteristic for each examined taxon, providing new data about the morphology and distribution of the antennal sensilla in Gerromorpha.

Preliminary notes on the external proprioceptor organs of Cicadomorpha

The hair sensilla and the campaniform sensilla, grouped together in well definite sensorial areas in 12 species of Cicadomorpha, are investigated and often the EPOs are reduced and in some taxa the degree of the reduction led to the disappearance of the organ.

Morphology and distribution of antennal sensilla in egg parasitoid, Ooencyrtus nezarae (Hymenoptera: Encyrtidae)

Morphology of antennal sensilla and their distribution were investigated in adults of Ooencyrtus nezarae, an egg parasitoid of Riptortus pedestris, using scanning electron microscopy to provide useful information for further investigations in sensory physiological function of each morphological type of sensilla.

Scanning Electron Microscopy Studies of the Antennal Sensilla of Metaphycus parasaissetiae Zhang & Huang (Hymenoptera: Encyrtidae)

Sex dimorphism in the sensilla composition of M. parasaissetiae is observed and major differences between the sexes were found in the number, distribution, shape, structure, and size of the identified sensilla.

Fine Morphology of Antennal and Ovipositor Sensory Structures of the Gall Chestnut Wasp, Dryocosmus kuriphilus

The organization of antennal and ovipositor sensory structures in the chestnut gall wasp, Dryocosmus kuriphilus is investigated, which may be useful to understand the biological role of plant derived chemical cues or to implement new control methods.

‘Campaniform’ structures on lobster antennae are dermal glands

The fine-structural findings, especially the lack of any sensory element, are clear evidence against previous descriptions of these structures as representing ‘campaniform sensilla of crustaceans’.

Anatomy and physiology of trochanteral campaniform sensilla in the stick insect, Cuniculina impigra

By mechanical stimulation of individual groups of sensilla it can be shown that at least two groups of campaniform sensilla contain units which respond to bending the femur backwards.

The presence of apical sensillas and subapical sensilla appear to be related to blood-sucking habits of mosquitoes, and probably function in blood detection during feeding.

Summary1.With the onset of apolysis the external extracellular space of the sensilla opens into the exuvial space. The cuticular sheaths and the ciliary structures become lengthened. The cuticular
