11 12 Thermoreceptors provide animals with background information about the thermal environ13 ment, which is at least indirectly a prerequisite for thermoregulation, and assists bloodsucking 14 insects in the search for their host. Recordings from peg-in-pit sensilla and tapered hairs on 15 the antennae of the bug Rhodnius prolixus revealed two physiologically different types of 16 warm cells. Both types responded more strongly to temperature pulses produced by switching 17 between two air… CONTINUE READING
