Electron micrographs of the labellar chemosensory hairs of the mosquito show that these sensilla have either three or four dendrites extending the length of the shaft. At the tip of each hair is a circular pore. The dendrites are enclosed within a scolopoid structure. At the distal end of the dendrites the microtubules are arranged in a random manner, but, in the proximal area, they are grouped into nine pairs. Near the base the pairs assume a spiral pattern giving rise to a three-compartmented… CONTINUE READING
