In insects, chordotonal organs occur in great morphological diversity, and are found at nearly every exoskeletal joint and between joints within limb and body segments. Morphologically, a chordotonal organ is a cluster of sensilla connected to movable parts of skeletal cuticle or to the tracheal system, or sometimes inserting into a connective tissue strand. It is noted within some chordotonal organs, neurons are… CONTINUE READING
