Antennal gustatory sensilla of the ground beetle Pterostichus aethiops (Pz., 1797) (Coleoptera, Carabidae) respond to salts, the three sensory cells, A-, B- and C-cells, producing action potentials that are distinguished by differences in their shape, amplitude, duration and polarity of spikes. The B-cell (salt cell) was highly sensitive to both ionic composition and concentration of the tested nine salt solutions showing phasic-tonic type of reaction with a pronounced phasic component.
