The antennal cold cells in larval ‘black-hair’ sensilla of the cave beetle,Speophyes lucidulus Delar., clearly respond to rates of temperature change 5 to 10 times lower than any tested on insect cold cells so far: often below 0.0005° C/s or 2° C/h. At a given ambient temperature between 11° C and 15° C, cold-cell impulse frequency was higher when temperature was falling at these rates than when it was rising at them in every one of the twelve cells examined. The mean differential sensitivity… CONTINUE READING
