On the pectines of scorpions, several types of cuticular receptors are located. Of these receptors, only the chemo- and mechanosensory peg sensilla have been studied so far while the response characteristics of the long, straight hair sensilla are unknown. As these sensilla protrude in the walking direction and to the ground, we assume that these receptors… CONTINUE READING
