In Drosophila, as in most insects, gustation is mediated by sensory hairs located on the external and internal parts of the proboscis and on the legs and wings. We describe in detail the organization and ultrastructure of the gustatory sensilla on the labellum and legs and the distribution of PBPRP2, a putative odorant-binding protein, in the gustatory organs of Drosophila. The labellum carries two kinds of sensilla: taste bristles and taste pegs. The former have the typical morphology of… CONTINUE READING
