  • Summary1.The cerci of locusts are paired, unsegmented, cone-shaped structures arising from a depression on either side of the tip of the abdomen (Fig. 2).2.The cerci bear hair sensilla of two basic types (Fig. 3): (a) filiform hairs, which emerge from a cuticular pit, are flexibly mounted, and are sensitive to wind and to mechanical displacement; and (b) bristle (or trichoid) hairs, which originate directly from the surface of the cercus, and are less flexibly mounted. The axons of neurones… CONTINUE READING
