The hair regeneration of a chemotactile sensillum was studied in the sunspiderGluvia during moulting. The sensilla in the old cuticle remain connected to the epidermis by dendrites which extend outwards during apolysis. The trichogen cells forming the new hairshaft in the exuvial space grow along the chemoreceptive dendrites, while the mechanoreceptive… (More)
