Summary1.The giant Madagascar cockroach,Gromphadorhina portentosa, hisses by expelling air from a pair of specialized abdominal spiracles. [...] Key Method These features, which are lacking in other spiracles, are sufficient to account for the character of the sound (Fig. 10).3.The motoneurons innervating both types of spiracles were located by axonal diffusion of cobalt, and their morphology was determined in wholemounted ganglia. The number, ganglionic locations, and in some cases branching patterns of…Expand
