  • The coleopteran family Ptiliidae (featherwing beetles) includes some of the smallest insects known with most of the representatives of this family measuring less than 1 mm in body length. A small body size largely determines the morphology, physiology, and biology of an organism and affects the organization of complex sense organs. Information on the organization of the compound eyes of Ptiliidae is scarce. Using scanning electron microscopy we analyzed the eyes of representatives of all… CONTINUE READING
