Haemolymph in certain Lepidoptera at rest is periodically transported from the anterior body to the abdomen and reversed by the coordinated activity of the heart, the accessory pulsatile organs and the abdomen. This oscillatory haemolymph transport is suggested to support haemolymph exchange and air ventilation in the anterior body and wings.
