Detailed information on sensory organs of Diplopoda especially on antennal sensilla are still sparse and fragmentary. The present study on the antennae of Oranmorpha guerinii (Polydesmida, Paradoxosomatidae) utilizing scanning electron microscopy revealed the presence of six sensillar types: (1) apical cones, (2) sensilla trichodea, (3) sensilla microtrichodea, (4) sensilla chaetica, (5) sensilla basiconica bacilliformia, and (6) sensilla basiconica spiniformia. External structure and… 
Antennal sensilla and ovipositor morphology of the European birch sawfly Arge pullata Zadd (Hymenoptera: Tenthredinidae, Argidae)
Putative functions are suggested to increase the understanding of the mechanisms by which this species finds hosts and mates, and how oviposition takes place, based on morphological evidence and research on Hymenoptera.
Sexual dimorphism of antenna of the scale insect Drosicha corpulenta (Kuwana) (Hemiptera: Coccoidae: Monophlebidae)
The results of this study provide an important foundation for the studies that link morphological characteristics to insect behavior and should stimulate the development of efficient semiochemial-based control strategies against D. corpulenta.


Structure and distribution of antennal sensilla in the centipede Scolopendra oraniensis (Lucas, 1846) (Chilopoda, Scolopendromorpha)
Abstract Scanning electron microscopic investigations of the antenna of adult Scolopendra oraniensis ( Lucas , 1846) show the presence of six types of cuticular sensilla: (1) numerous slender
Fine structure of the antennal sensilla of the millipede Orthomorphella pekuensis (Polydesmida: Paradoxosomatidae)
The fine structural characteristics of various sensory receptors on the antenna of a millipede, Orthomorphella pekuensis, were observed with field emission scanning electron microscopy and conclude that the main function of the CS and TS are related to mechanical reception, and that the BS and AS are likely to function in olfactory reception of volatile odors of plants.
Antennal sensory organs in the female millipede Orthomorphella pekuensis (polydesmida: Paradoxosomatidae)
Although this millipede also possess a number of primary or secondary sexual characters to improve the efficiency of reproduction, it could not observe their prominent sexually dimorphic characters in the antennal sensilla with the exception of minor structural and numerical differences.
The source of chilopod sensory information: External structure and distribution of antennal sensilla in Scutigera coleoptrata (chilopoda, Scutigeromorpha)
With the evidence provided in this article for the Scutigeromorpha, SEM data are available at last on the antennal sensilla for all five chilopod taxa, allowing a comparative discussion of antennals morphology in Chilopoda.
A second species in the millipede suborder Sinocallipodidea Shear, 2000 (Diplopoda: Callipodida)
Although there are just a few differences in the structure of the gonopods, the new species can be easily distinguished from its congener by the larger number of ocelli and pleurotergites, the relative length of antennae, shape of antennomere 7, body coloration, etc.
The structure of bimodal chemo-, thermo-, and hygroreceptive sensilla on the antenna of Locusta migratoria
The present observations favor the hypothesis that insect sensilla combining the triad of moist air, dry air and cold receptors generally lack pores, and suggest alternative roles in stimulus transduction can be suggested for substructures demonstrated.
Structures dendritiques des cônes antennaires apicaux de diplopodes (Myriapoda)
A comparative study of four antennal apical cones of diplopods is undertaken in two julids and in a penicillate, Polyxenus lagurus, with a comparatively similar structure, and the possible double function, gustatory as well as tactile, is discussed.
12 Chilopoda – Sense organs
Besides the Chilopoda, Tomosvary organs are found in all remaining subgroups of the Myriapoda as well as in Protura and Collembola.
New studies on myriapods (Chilopoda, diplopoda) from Ibiza with a checklist for the Balearic Islands
The paper presents the results of studies based on collections of Diplopoda and Chilopoda gathered on the island of Ibiza in the years 2004 and 2005. Approximately 270 specimens of 24 species were

The sensillum is supposed to be a combined contactchemo- and mechanoreceptor on the antennae of Lithobius forficatus, and its possible signification for the orientation ofLithobius is discussed.
